  • Skateboarders need somewhere to go, says Cynthiana resident

    To the editor:

    This past spring, the Recreation Department Board saw fit to remove the skate park from its River Road location - accusing skaters of breaking rules like dress code, littering and foul language. Although the city ordered a new location be found, still no skate park can be found in Cynthiana. I see we got a new picnic/deck area built at the River Road Park. Maybe that frivolous project could have been delayed a while in order to provide a place for dozens of kids in this town to get the exercise they need.
