  116. 116. Out of the Box<br />So we would like to find and help facilitate a solution!<br />Possibilities include:<br />Reopen the Skate park at the YMCA<br />Maybe a new Park like the Saugerties one at Forsyth?<br />Engage the help of other skateboarders from Kingston who have grown up here, are now adults, but still identify and sympathize with the problem.<br />
