SKATE PARK FORUM ANSWERS QUESTIONS
July 12, 2019, 7:56 am

A forum on scooter use at Bemidji Skate Park was held earlier this week, where many locals came out to express their opinion that skateboards and scooters don’t mix well at the facility. The skate park is 18,200 square feet and is located in City Park. During its open hours… 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily… the skate park prohibits wheeled devices such as scooters and bikes. But many who showed up for the meeting, said the rule is regularly broken by children who ride scooters around the park. Commission staff acknowledged rule enforcement can be difficult because of limited staffing. They did say they would try to continue prohibiting scooters at the skate park, a move those in attendance were very supportive of.
