Bikers, scooterers,ripstickers,bigwheelers,kids are like parasites that invade a skatepark.
I wonder if there'll ever be a day when they get their own park.

UGH every time I go to Chicago I search and search and search for that park.  and never win.  ever. 

and a bunch of skaters in Flint worked for a park for years and finally got a portable park while still saving for a concrete piece.  We took it upon ourselves to decide that there were no bikes allowed, and regulated how long the ripstick runs were gonna be. 

and although I've met a few alright BMXers I've never once come across a BMX park.  Skateboarders seem to be the only breed to have enough ambition to make their own shit.

Bikers can suck a nut when they bitch about not being allowed @ a park.

Pretty damn sure every skateboarder wished the could ride on dirt and grass.

build a park yourself, and you get to make the rules.
you also get to paint over the inevitable graffiti left by the bikers you kick out.

but it is worth it.

I'm going to one day soon. I build little stuff here and there, but I want to build a really nice cement park here

But in a town where the mayor will bulldoze a runway over night without consent of the city, I hate to imagine what he would do to a skatepark...

wilson park is a lot of fun, but pretty frustrating because of the high amount of morons who go there. i would go a lot more often if i didnt have to deal with all the bikers, bladers, ripsticks, snakeboards, heelies, scooters and randoms. once you get past all of that crap wilson is a lot of fun.

there is another cement park in chicago called burnham. i havent been there yet, so i dont know if its good or not. i have gotten mixed reviews on it.

if you are able to travel a little there is a really good cement park about 25 minutes outside chicago in a park called northbrook. definitely worth the trip out there.

there are some other cement parks throughout the suburbs, but they are nothing special.
