|: Also, I notice that the title on their website is "Washington Street SKATE Park", but all throughout the site, they refer to themselves as "Washington Street SKATEBOARD Park". Makes you wonder if the original founders had a different idea in mind for the park and its' users??!!
I suspect lingual confusion at work. Everybody with wheels under their feet likes to refer to their activity as "skating" but they won't their enemy du jour use the term. When I really like to rile up some skateboarders, I tell them that inline skaters probably have the biggest right to call their activity "skating". After all, it stems from "ice skating", right? And who is closest to ice skating?
