Town considering skateboard park site at municipal complex

Town board members including Scott Wood asked the teens if the park were built beside the village hall, whether they'd discontinue skating down Old Post Road, the steep access road to the municipal complex.

Other sites proposed Monday were the Lake George Recreation Center, Gaslight Village festival space and in Queensbury beside the municipal Gurney Lane pool and park.

Lake George resident Patricia Dow spoke on behalf of the skateboarder's request.

"This is a healthy activity for kids, and our community would do well to support them," she said. "I ask that politics be set aside and that the town and village cooperate to find a suitable place."

She said the park would not only benefit local youth but boost tourism.

"It's important to honor the effort these youth are demonstrating - being part of our community and being good citizens," she said.
