Skateboard Park

There's something very 21st Century about specialized parks. Prescott has at least two of 'em -- a park for dogs and their people and the skateboard extravaganza above. Very photogenic.

I got a good look at it back last summer when the remarkable Niece from Memphis was visiting. Neither of us could resist taking a picture despite the very overcast weather! Very much a boy kind of place, I'd say...

...though that kid looks sort of lost down there!

Oops.

I tried skateboarding 40 plus years ago. It didn't take me long to realize it wasn't for me.

If skateboarding had been around when I was of the proper age, I'd probably have tried it! It wasn't & so I didn't & that may be one reason I never broke any bones all those years ago.

What about a park for dogs on skateboards?

Granny J said...

Good idea! They obviously were not welcome at the boy skateboard park, as the pictures plainly show.

Ah, but did you roller skate, J?

Granny J said...

For sure,A.L. But when I was a kid, you had to have a proper sidewalk for skating. It was a bit of a walk from our house to a sidewalk. Poor little me. Nothing like modern in-line skates.
