Skateboarders continue to encroach on the skateboard park

The Park City Police Department last week continued to receive complaints about bicycle riders encroaching on the skateboard park at City Park, which is popular with skateboarders and inline skaters but has long attracted people on bicycles.

On Saturday, May 16 at 12:55 p.m., kids were seen on bikes in the park. Officers told them to leave.

A bicyclist was spotted in the skateboard park at 3:09 p.m. on Friday, May 15.

At 8:11 p.m. on Monday, May 11, a bicyclist was seen in the skateboard park. An officer told the person of the park’s prohibition of bicycles.

Bicyclists are prohibited from using the park, but the rules have not prevented them from doing so. The police typically tell them to leave when they find them in the skateboard park.
