A recent news broadcast indicated that a skate park is going to be built in the Augusta area. I think this is a wonderful idea. There are so many young people who love n-line skates and skateboards, but who have always been denied a place to enjoy themselves as well as practice to improve their talents.
I'm glad someone has finally acknowledged these athletes who would otherwise be skating through dangerous parking lots because they have no where else to skate.
