A manual, a pole jam and a wipeout

August 27, 2006|by JULIE E. GREENE

Skateboarders love to get creative with their launch pads - witness the "pole jam" on this page, but they also enjoy staged setups.

Hagerstown's Skate Park, under the grandstands at Fairgrounds Park, is one of a few places in the Tri-State area with courses set up for skateboarders.

The park is open 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Skateboarding costs $3 on Wednesdays and $5 on weekends. If riders don't have their own helmet and pads - which are required to use the facilities - they can be rented for $1.
