  • "Glass"hill as we called it was a great place to ride your bike fast when you were a kid in that neighborhood. Thanks for that old memory,it fits like an old shoe. Unfortunately lack of a place for young people to have "good, clean" fun was a problem then and is still a problem although these people now vote. I guess we have forgotten our own complaints from our youth.

  • As I have said many many times the youth of Shelbyville Need something!!

    I was on the upper level of Wal-mart (where Cato's and Radio Shack is) kids were everywhere in that parking lot skate boarding on Saturday. That is very dangerous, there were so many cars pulling in and out of the parking lot having to avoid kids on skate boards.

  • They're bored with the skate park! They get together and plan what you are describing above. They group together and go around town skateboarding. My son goes to the skate park almost on a daily basis and has ask if he could go around town with his friends. We wont let him go because it is dangerous. You also have kids that dont have a way to the park so they skateboard there which is dangerous also!

    I suggest requiring the skaters to wear helmets, all other skate parks do and its just a smart idea! Build another set of ramps, they run all over eachother.
