Roslyn Park Hours — Limited

From Rory (this is a dis­ap­point­ment to all. Don’t kill the messenger):

The town­ship of Abington has decided to have a park mon­i­tor dur­ing all hours of oper­a­tion at Pat Kerr skate park in Roslyn. In their infi­nite wis­dom, they failed to hire these park mon­i­tors prior to the open­ing of the skate park. The result is that the skate park is not open 9 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week as posted. Instead, the park is some­times closed some­times open but not for more than 5 hours/​day.

Hopefully this is a tem­po­rary sit­u­a­tion and in the near future the park’s oper­at­ing hours might cater not only to the kids on sum­mer vaca­tion but also peo­ple, like myself, who work Monday-​​Friday from 9 – 5. I know that many have dri­ven to Roslyn only to find the park closed for no appar­ent rea­son. In an attempt to save some peo­ple the trip, below are the hours of oper­a­tion for August that I recently found posted on the gate of the park.

  • –Monday the 10th, 17th, and 24th — 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • –Tuesday the 11th and 18th — 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • –Wednesday the 12th and 19th — 11 a.m. — 4 p.m.
  • –Thursday the 13th, 20th, and 27th — 10 a.m. — ? p.m.
  • –Friday the 14th and 21st — 11 a.m. — 4 p.m.
  • –Saturday the 15th and 22nd — 11 a.m. — 4 p.m.

*There are no times listed for Sunday in the month of August.
*There are no times listed for Friday the 7th — Sunday the 9th

  1. retards in action…see what hap­pens when you doubt that the park will ever actu­ally get built.…and IT DOES!

  2. abing­ton is blow­ing it.. the only rea­son they need a mon­i­tor is to enforce the hel­met rule. i’m hop­ing after a while they’re going to stop both­er­ing with the mon­i­tors and just have the park be open at your own risk.

  3. Ask the fine folks who built the park just how coöper­a­tive the town has been with them. Amazing park under god-​​awful bureaucracy.

  4. Grrr… I could go tomor­row– not open. I can go on Sunday Mornings– nope not open…

    I get off work at 6 and can be there by 6:30 or so– again not open.

    Two Saturdays in August and no Sundays? Wha??

    SO on the week­ends when all of the local skaters are look­ing to get there ledge on… they will have to go out and find other ledges that peo­ple dont want them to skate and was prob­a­bly a rea­son for the park being built… ugh, I could go on and on.

    I stopped last week with hopes of skat­ing ‚it was closed. The kids had built a jump ramp in the bas­ket­ball court next to it. As I was leav­ing there were more and more kids skat­ing toward the park too.

  5. why bother skat­ing here. kids are going to skate the shit outta the bed­room size park for the 5 hours on ran­dom days

  6. Well we’ll see how long this shit lasts. I doubt I will ever drive there to check it out if I have to worry about the place being closed. Lame.

  7. they got an atten­dent yes­ter­day. guy skates so its not like hes some kook. and i like how some­one says how peo­ple are gonna always be skat­ing it and its crammed. its less crowded at all times then pops and its bigger

  8. cramitdafrog, I truly hope that you are a younger per­son that is going through one of those boohoo im angry, and the world is against me fazes, because if your actu­ally a man, chances are your gonna suck at being one for quite some time. I also hope that your not some­one im friends with in REAL life and then you go on your com­puter to talk your petty shit. Words cant describe how much of a bum­mer you are. If the peo­ple build­ing parks like roslyn want to see kids learn how to skate pools so be it. they spent count­less hours of donated labor to do some­thing good for their com­mu­nity. you on the other hand spend count­less hours suck­ing at life. What have you built? What have you accom­plished? Im sure the list is shorter than your dick. So… if your up for it we will set­tle this the old fash­ion way, a dual. Any spot within the city of broth­erly love. We have one week to film, then post the footy. If i cant com­pletely shred you then ill apol­o­gize and shut up. People will find out who you are, can you han­dle that?

  9. cramitdafrog and pissed skate­boarder don’t come if u don’t like it.Nobody needs your neg­a­tiv­ity at the park.Go skate at wall park,douchebags!!!

  10. whoa whoa whoa! whos takin my old post name? and sec­ond, I wouldnt want to wish wall park upon any­one!
    to jesse, fuck that guy, who cares what he thinks. less peo­ple there means more room for shreddin!

  11. There wont be more room for shred­din, because bitches like this will go there and skate then post anony­mously about it. just call­ing a bitch a bitch.

  12. Greg,I’ll post as Danny to avoid any confusion.Jesse,I put some time in vol­un­teer­ing on dif­fer­ent parts of the build so it’s kind of a drag to hear these kids com­plain about it ’cause we had noth­ing to skate as kids grow­ing up in Roslyn.If they don’t appre­ci­ate it,let them stay home and play video games!The world’s full of arro­gant kids who don’t know how good they got it!The kids that want to skate will come,and the shit talk­ers will stay home and be lit­tle bitches!We can skate until it hurts,then pound beers ’till the pain goes away.Fuck the negativity!!!I think we’ve got a great park!I’ve been in FLA for 2 weeks and all I found down here is 1 con­crete park,which costs 8 bucks a day to get into,with a FULL PAD REQUIREMENT,and 4 parks like Wall,with shitty metal quar­ter­pipes and a kinked rail in the middle.I CAN’T WAIT TO GET HOMEROSLYN!!!

  13. I want to skate it, I do. Whatever. I’ll deal with the hel­met. Why do they have to have such lame-​​ass hours? Does any­body have a sched­ule for September? I don’t want to drive an hour just to have to turn around. Goddamn. What a lame township.

  14. I’m hit­ting the road today to head back north.When I get back I’ll try to get the sched­ule and post it so no one has to waste a trip just to find out it isn’t open.I did see a few peo­ple talk­ing to the town­ship guy about apply­ing for the “skate­guard” job so the the park should be open more,soon.I’m dri­ving from FLA so it will be a few days before I get back.
