If parents stayed at the park with their children it would help. Otherwise it is just like turning them out on the streets. No activity replaces parents. Kids may like to act all grown up, but it means something in their hearts when their parents are around, whether they watch them skate or just take a book to read. Just be there.

my son skates there and has gotten really good because of it. He is now competing. I think the park helped get alot of kids off the streets and is a wonderful thing. Where I am origianlly from the kids had to sign in, sign a waiver and there was supervision. It was a good idea. If parents dont want to have to sit with their kids to keep them safe, why not get together and rotate supervision dates. Or pay to skate and hire a security officer. I am willing to pay for that or to sit and watch.
I totally agree. Why don't you talk to County Judge Ex Neal Cassity and organize it.

That park was bad before they built the ramps. When i was in high school thats where you either met your drug dealer, went to get drunk, had sex, and fought. Now go ahead and take the park away and you'll still have problems. The lake street side has alot of problems any way. There are a few known dealers in those homes. I know this also i'm a social worker and i've made many trips to that area to different homes.

I know that park has always been skanky. In the early nineties i remember around the track they had exersize stations. They had signs that told you what to do and what body parts it worked. Then they put in the townhomes. I know some of them stayed nice but trash moved in others. Thats any rental properties. By 98 or 99 that place was ate up with punks. I know not all teens are punks.

I don't understand why everyone acts like skateparks are the only source of crime. Anything where young people are unsupervised is a risk. It's not even the kids that do everything, criminals will be criminals through any means/outlet and any kind of growth attracts crime . You should blame the creeps before the skatepark it's just a heap of concrete anyway.

BTW: I'm rooting for the mommy as well, it's nice to hear that optimistic support when %80 of the world is against anything youthful. If there are ever ripstick parks, people will say those attract drugs as well.

I am a mom of two skaters. It's rediculous that you argue over locations. Just build the darn thing. Everyone acts like these kids have a critical contagious disease or something. Attitudes will change in a snap when this becomes an Olympic event. You all complain that these kids are trouble makers or worse. I say that is slander and maybe you should try it..you may like it!!! Now build the darn park already!!!!!~
I'm a BMX biker, and why do all skaters and bikers get this. It seems like every time somebody wants to build a skatepark people have to be flippin' critics about it. Come on, my goodness gracious!

I used to skateboard, but never got good at it, and it also goes towards anyone using bikes, blades, or boards in the skateparks. So I agree with you that there are biases and you ain't alone.
