Lakewood Skate Park has the honorary distinction of being the area's first skate park, and according to you, it's still the best. It might have taken years of wrangling, fundraising, and fighting with city council to get it approved, but since construction finished, it bore out none of the worries of unruly teenagers and problems that opponents had predicted. Instead, it's a safe and friendly spot for families and teens and a draw for skaters all over the county.
