Rhodes Skate Park

The skate park was born in 1992 when Glenn Rhodes got the idea to find a place for skaters to skate because all the places downtown were running the kids off. So with the help of some local skating kids he went out and found a good place. Like a lot of other cities they found a nice place under a free way. Other cities that came up with similar ideas include Philidelphia, Seattle, Vancouver, and Portland.

In this case though, they added restrooms, and a basketball court. Rhodes spent two years coordinating it all. Other then hanging out with bums,rhodes skate park its a cool park.
