Liability not an issue with skateparks, says designer

Coweta skateboarder Austin Gordon looks over a skatepark presentation package that Tony Misiano, left, of New Line Skateparks put together for a recent meeting.

Liability isn’t an issue with public skate parks, despite common perceptions, according to the skate park designer who spoke recently to a group of Cowetans hoping to bring a concrete skate park to the county.

“One of the common misconceptions is that councils here believe there is a liability issue with having a skatepark,” said Tony Misiano of New Line Skateparks.
