       A sprawling playground for rollerbladers and skateboarders doing their best to get airborne, this new park was opened by the city government this February, and attracts around 200 visitors every weekend. You'll see young guys in baggy pants dive down concave ramps and hit the ascending ramp with a speed that throws them into the air, while groups of men and women sporting sunglasses and rollerblades sit casually on the edge of a six-foot half-pipe, taking turns rolling down the giant curves. The park itself has a massive maze of half-pipes, spines, rails, mini-ramps, and quarter-pipes, all designed for catching speed, sliding, rotating, and catching air. Admission to the park and use of the ramps is free, though visitors are required to wear helmets. --By Angelica Montgomery
