Last Saturday it was amazingly warm (+10C or more) so I took a walk around the Shaw Milennium Skatepark in Calgary. I haven't seen that many skate parks but from what I have seen this is pretty impressive. Even with quite a bit of snow and ice still around there were at least a couple of hundred 'kids' using the park. Bikes, skateboards and one or two with rollerblades. Looks to me like 99% a male activity. There were some serious athletes there. You know those people that make something pretty spectacular look easy. The park is set up with areas of "Beginner", "Intermediate" and "Advanced" so there is something for everyone.
