  • Inspect the park before using. Stay off when wet, icy or other hazardous conditions exist.
  • Look before you go, don’t drop in on others and wait your turn!
  • Check bad behaviors at the gate, including foul language, tobacco and alcohol use or anything else that might get you in trouble.
  • Graffiti = park closed! Don’t allow this to happen. Report anyone you know who does something to close your park!
  • No extra stuff like ramps and jumps are allowed (in a place like this, you don’t need them!).
  • To our younger users: Make sure the adult that brought you stays with you.
  • Take care of your park and it will take care of you.
  • In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
