a place for skating. it consists of ramps, mini ramps, vert ramps, bowls, pipes, banks, ledges, stairs, rails, flow and the sirface can be either concrete or wood. It can be either be indoors or outdoors. Public skateparks are usually outdoors and are surfaced concrete, and some are gated while indoor ones like vans are private owned and are made of wooden ramps. Skateparks began in the mid 1970's and closed in the early 1980s due to skyrocketing insurance costs because of injuries. skaters rode backyard ramps and also invented street skating. the last of the early parks to close was upland's pipeline in 1988. by 2000 the skateparks make a comeback some even better consisting street skating as well as vert skating while the early parks was just vert and flow, and one cannot sue if they are injured but can be cited for safety gear if raided by police.
