Skatepark in Glenview?
Mary Cashiola of the Flyer reports that Glenview has been announced as the Park Department's choice of site for Memphis's first skatepark. The local skateboarders and bikers have been making impressive presentations about the popularity of skating in America, and they've had strong showings at planning meetings for Mud Island. Memphis is overdue for a skatepark, and Glenview sounds like a great, centrally located spot for one. I still think a skatepark could rejuvenate Mud Island as well, but one in Glenview would be a great start.
