And now what...

Our local piece of crap skatepark made of plastic and metal has been torn down...why? because some redneck garbage started taking off pieces of the ramps and was moving the quarters all around and im sure it didn't help that the night before someone threw a maltov cocktail in the park...anyways now it looks like we're back to square one for parks around our area

We acutally used to have 2 parks. The first one was a piece of wooden crap with a couple of quarters, a few rails, and a box, but that got torn down when I was like 6.

The second park was right in my friend's back yard but his (insert insult here) dad burnt all the ramps... why? Because "Too many people were getting hurt and coming to me for help". I really never knew the thing existed until this past year, but the bad thing is, it was burnt like 3 years ago.

So don't worry, you're not the only one without local park(s).

it was just one of those little lego parks, basically all ramps you can buy over the internet and put together yourself and they're being taken down because of a few idiots

it's this little park in old town manassas, nothing special, but now its ok because they're picking a few bike riders and a few skateboarders to design a (hopefully) really good and big skatepark
