To many local skateboarders, the park was unfinished, and lacked what they call "flow." The city got back to it this year with $300,000 more in upgrades, and the park officially re-opens this afternoon (May 15, 2012). And the investment is already beginning to pay off.</p> Mon, 14 May 2012 22:25:55 +0000 Sylvia Maria Gross 17656 at http://kcur.org Skateboarders Test-Ride Upgrades To Penn Valley Skate Park
