Skateboarding Is For Families

I spent the afternoon with my son, Daniel, over at Pier Park, checking out the new skateboarding park. It was packed with teenagers, adults and several families. i guess we missed the clean up. I did find it impressive how clean the skate park looked. Great work.

I talked to one Dad from Seattle, who said they are thinking of moving here just because of all the great skate parks here in Portland. He told me that the community spirit around skateboarding is what he really finds striking. They were on their way over to Glenhaven to check out the new park that opened Saturday.

Seems like these skate parks are already showing their return on investment.

    A couple proposed sites. I found the triangle under the steel bridge an interesting proposition.
