Added to Skateparks: Grove Street Skate Park - Springdale,AR

Springdale has always somewhat felt like the middle child. Not the favorite child or not the successful twins, more like the one who hasn't quite 'figured out my place and life' and mom and dad still sit her down and have the "Let's get your life back on track" talk. But she is still part of the family and we love her for who she is, and at that, she does have a skatepark...Check the Park.
