Skater's Paradise Coming to Jonesboro

May 17, 2004 -- Posted at 10:20p.m. CDT

JONESBORO --While they're enjoying themselves, others consider them a nuisance. They're skate-boarders, and here in region 8, they don't have much of a choice when it comes to where they skate.

This week city council and Jonesboro Parks and Recreation approved a bid to fund a new skate park. This new skaters paradise will be located at Allen Park in Joneseboro. The new slopes will be made of concrete as opposed to wood. It's expected to be finished by late summer and after that there's one really hard hurdle skaters have to get over before they hit the new ramps, they have to wait for the concrete to dry.
