A hometown skatepark for me!!!

To my amazement a skatpark is being built in Portland....where I currently reside. Its being built on a pre-exisiting tennis court and will have a fence around it. The posts for the fence have already been cemented in and hopefully progress will be made soon on the ramps. One tennis court is pretty small for a park, but anything is better than nothing. I'm not sure wether the park will be wood or cement like the old Portland Park that was closed down several years back. I'm psyched because the nearest park to me is a 20 minute drive.....this one would be 5 minutes from my house! The bummer here is that it appears the town is still up in the air about allowing bikes in the skatepark. You can be sure I'll have a petition going around in a heartbeat if they try to shut us out. Time will tell....
