The Dilapidated Park of Chatham, MA My local park, on Cape Cod, has fallen apart. A few years back it was semi-dangerous as the halfpipe swayed under a rider's force and the metal plates lifted on the fun-box, making potential slams all the more likely. But now... it's a wreck! The only skateable portion is the tight concrete bowl and it's outer wall.

The town of Chatham approved the money for revamping the park at the start of the Summer, yet nothing has been done. Pro skater Zered Bassett, who rides for Zoo York, grew up around here and skated this park as a kid! You'd think the town would want to keep the park functional for the tons of kids who skate the parking lot at the Community Center.
