Sacramento needs a skatepark. We’ve got parks for golfers, basketball players, swimmers and even bocci ball enthusiasts. The toddlers have their play areas. Heck, even our dogs have a selection of parks and still there’s no place for skateboarders and rollerbladers to play. In a city where it’s both unsafe and unlawful to ride a skateboard on the sidewalk, it’s time to provide our wheeled recreationists with a legal alternative. The Sacramento Skatepark Advocates are a grassroots group of skaters and parents who are working to build a skatepark in Sacramento. Come to the first public meeting of the SSA this Saturday at 10 a.m. Learn about the skatepark proposal, developed in conjunction with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, soon to be presented to City Council and find out what you can do to help. Clunie Center Auditorium, McKinley Park, 601 Alhambra Blvd. Immediately following the one-hour meeting, everyone is invited on a road trip up Highway 50 to the Cameron Park Skatepark.
