Editor’s Note: (07/19/2016) – Although the original rules prohibited BMX bikes and scooters, starting summer of 2016, they are now allowed at the skate park.
The brand new Lake George Skate Plaza in Charles R. Wood Park is complete, but updated rules won’t be solidified until an upcoming public hearing.
According to The Post Star, the public hearing has been scheduled for December 2 at 5:00pm, and amendments to the Charles R. Wood Park/Skate Plaza rules will be discussed at that time.
