The new skate park will include ramps, rails, and more for beginning and intermediate skill level skate boarders.<br /><br />Half-a-dozen skaters attended the meeting and applauded after commissioners vote 4-to-0 to proceed with the project. However, there will be no gain without a little pain.<br /> Fri, 23 Mar 2012 20:15:28 +0000 Rich Egger 12350 at http://tspr.org Major Upgrade for Macomb Skate Park
