WTF is Skateboarding A La Carte?
It’s an effort to present more info at once. Pretty much a collection of thoughts spewed into an article for your enjoyment.
Let’s get right to it…
Since the winter that seemed to never end finally ended, I want to get out to the location to take some pics and do a post on the vibes of the location and my general opinion.
Springfield Township Skatepark
I reached out to the admin of the Facebook group and have a contact of the person running the effort. Ready to get involved this summer. Excited to see what’s to come.
This DIY out in Roxborough is my favorite and I want to be an active contributor.
Shit, I can get a free WiFi connection there, I’ll bring the office there when it’s nice. This park reminds me of the old days at Moss and Whitehall.
