Skatepark Closed

The McDowell Recreation Center skatepark in downtown Marion has been closed until further notice.

Officials say that is because of what they are calling excessive loitering, vandalism and littering.

They made the move last Monday, blocking the parking lot, and posting signs all around that part of the facility.

The former tennis courts were converted into a place for skateboarders more than seven years ago, but has become a trouble spot for authorities.

Some skaters say the problems are being caused by people who do not come there to participate in the sport.

They say they hope the county and city can work together to figure out a solution and get the skatepark reopened.
