WAKEFIELD- Members of the Wakefield Planning Commission contemplated a potential skateboard area near Eddy Park at their Tuesday evening meeting.
The discussion followed a presentation by Christopher Tweiten, a social studies teacher at the Wakefield-Marenisco K-12 School.
"Not all kids participate in team sports," said Tweiten, who said he believes that, just as organized sports are a "positive" element of any community, so too can activities such as skateboarding promote perseverance and build character.
Moreover, "It's fun for them," he added.
