To the editor: I find it hard to believe a dog park seems to be so important, when our children who do not participate in organized sports have absolutely no place to ride bikes, roller skate, skateboard, etc.
My grandson has to be driven 35 miles each way to skateboard in either Wilmington or Myrtle Beach, S.C. He is not the only one. There is no place in Shallotte for them to skate or bike.
We have a beautiful park, terrific for soccer or baseball, a tennis court and a basketball court. No bikes or skates allowed. We desperately need someplace for teenagers.
