The Perils of Skateboard Parks
The Arcata Eye reports on an accident at Arcata's skateboard park. They also mention other things that come along with the creation of skateboard parks, like people misusing them, graffiti and such.
Hate to be like this but it seems such things aren't given much consideration when projects like this are planned. Seems there's always someone that wants to screw things up for everyone else.
Makes me wonder if Eureka's proposal for a skateboard park is such a good idea.
As an aside, if find it difficult to believe a bicycle causes more wear and tear on the park than a skateboard.
