Coleman Oval Skatepark Open for Business
School’s out for summer. Translation – the recently-reopened Coleman Oval Skatepark is brimming with business.
The popular park officially lifted the veil last Friday, and it’s pretty much been a free-for-all ever since. In fact, it was busy all week, but now the action is legit. No more wire cutters necessary to have a good time.
We dropped in over the weekend to nab some shots of the completed project, and were greeted with a completely packed house. Skaters, BMXers, Razor Scooters, and even the lone rollerblader were grinding the fresh surface and its obstacles in the 90-degree heat. Overall response from users seems quite positive. And while the day was mostly civil, there were some tempers that needed cooling. Like this schoolyard fight between two youngsters near the stairwell entry.
Kids will be kids. Indeed, when the Tre Truck pulled up, a chunk of the crowd queued for liquid nourishment and ice cream.
Meanwhile, the dog park has been relocated to the rear, closer to the baseball field.
