Re: “Should BMXers be allowed at the downtown skatepark?

A properly built park will withstand any peg abuse - just don't include pool coping (because skate trucks damage it just as much as pegs do, and I have proof) and use the proper concrete mix.

Mixed sessions work at parks all over the country, but they would work much better if skateparks & local shops taught younger uses the nuances of park etiquette. It's the younger kids who drop in on each other/older riders, don't look both ways and hurt themselves.

Personally, I have been discriminated against by skateboarders numerous times over the years, both with fundraising efforts & in sharing common spaces like parks & pools. Not everyone is like this, but its an unnecessary stigma for 2 similar groups who have existed for the same amount of time. Facilities like this cost a lot of money, and it's almost unheard of for cities to build 2 separate parks to keep the groups from mingling. It's time to grow up.
