When councils listen, you get a skatepark like this one in Cardiff Bay.
A football-pitch-sized nirvana of glass smooth concrete and interesting lines.
You know, stuff that skaters actually want to skate.
(not some waste of money playground company garbage that will rarely get used).
So well done to Cardiff City Council. .
Well done for listening to the end-user.
Well done for building it with such care and finesse.
Well done for giving up such prime real estate.
and well done for thinking different, you've built something great.
And the skateboarders salute you for it.
