I’m surprised the subject of a skateboard park came up at the May 18 council meeting after two failures -- the pump track and converting a tennis court at Calusa Park years ago.
The idea has no redeeming value for our kids. They have a higher interest than going around in circles. If you want to find out, offer a rec bus to take them to other parks and see how many you get.
Furthermore, 530 is not the place for this -- a $2 million multi-use property. The centerpiece of the Civic Center. I agree with Luis Lauredo; a decision on its upgrade and use has already been made. So, do it. What’s the hold-up anyway?
Again, in blunt words, this dumb idea.
