Isn't there a skate park for the kids?

In reply to Dale Kethler’s letter (The News, August 16), these are my sentiments exactly.

As a frequent walker on the boardwalk, I too appreciate what we have and would hate to see it destroyed by abuse.

I noticed on a recent Sunday in particular the sun was shining and it was simply a perfect day. My family and I were enjoying a leisurely stroll with many other seniors with their families.

It was so warm and pleasant and peaceful but our tranquility was soon destroyed by three or four teenage boys roaring by dashing in and around the people. There were quite a number of small children as well.

I’m sure there are other places for these boys to skate. Do they not have a skateboard park?

It is most disturbing and frustrating to have these skaters dashing in and around people and noisy too.

Little children could be knocked over as well.
