The public parks in Tarentum have signs prohibiting skateboarding, but young people in Tarentum find places to skateboard anyhow.
When I arrived early for a meeting at Central Presbyterian Church on Monday evening, I found a young skateboarder practicing in the church parking lot.
He was a bit self-conscious when he saw me take out my camera, but before long he was showing me a lot of what he could do.
All of this leaves me wondering what is happening with the Tarentum skateboard park project. Bids were opened, and contracts awarded, but this summer does not seem to have been a time when anything was built on the site near Dreshar Stadium. Perhaps information will be shared at the Borough Council meeting next Monday.
