Bicyclists spotted inside the City Park skateboard park

The Park City Police Department responded to at least two reports last week of people on bicycles using the City Park skate park, a facility where bicycles are prohibited.

The cases reported to the police include:

  • On Saturday, May 7 at 2:35 p.m., young people were seen on bicycles in the skate park
  • On Thursday, May 5 at 7:43 p.m., a bicyclist was seen in the skate park.

    There have been occasional reports of bicyclists using the skate park for years. Park City bars bicyclists from using the park, though, saying that the bicycles damage the park’s surface.

    There are also concerns about accidents involving the bicycle riders and the skateboarders or inline skaters.

    Police officers usually order the bicyclists to leave if they are found inside the skate park.

    Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

    On Sunday, May 8 at 3:49 p.m., someone found a wallet at the McPolin Farm. The person turned the wallet into the police.
