Right next to the golf course, but attracting a very different kind of visitor, is the skate park. Skateboarders are the most populous variety of participants, with a sprinkling of BMX BMX bike riders and aggressive rollerblades thrown in.
Once you choose your wheels, you can run them into and off of a variety of metal and very smooth concrete rails, ramps and stairs. All in good enjoyable.
