Northside Skatepark in Norfolk, VA officially opened on October 2nd, 2010. Skateboarders in Norfolk now have a safe and legal place to skate.
One group looking forward to using the park is the Maury Skateboard Club. The high school organization meets weekly to discuss skateboarding trends, demonstrate techniques and exchange tips. The groups sponsor, teacher Rich Presas, said providing open space helps ease the stereotype that all skateboarders damage property, spray graffiti or cause other annoyances.I’ll stand by my students, he said. Theyre very smart and intelligent. Theyre good kids.
Providing a safe and fun environment for skateboarding and biking helps promote healthy athletic activity, says Darrell Crittendon, director of the city recreation department. (Please visit hamptonroads.com for more information on the locals reaction the new skatepark in Norfolk, VA)
