Skate park a hit as summer heats up

ARLINGTON The gunmetal gray skate park in Arlington looks a bit like the Los Angeles river in the movie Terminator 2. The bland color and cold feel of concrete jumps out at a passerby, particularly in contrast with the lush grass of nearby baseball fields. The skate park is not exactly a sight for sore eyes and you probably wouldnt want to take a family portrait in front of it, but for the kids who spend hours honing their skateboarding and BMX biking talents on its concrete surfaces, the park is a welcome landmark in the community.
