E-Mail from Assistant to the Parks Superintendent:
“Brad the park has been wonderful. We have even observed young people with brooms sweeping the area of debris. I cannot think of another project in the City with such success. Not even the $3.1 mil- lion dollar swim center will get the use of this $300,000 skate park plaza. It is a place for people of all ages to come (free) and exercise, gather, bond and just have fun. There are those in the commu- nity that want to say unfriendly comments but the truth is in the use. Thanks again Brad for the RAD (ha ha) design.” – Sharon West
