The cities of Cleveland and Coshocton Ohio bought the easy fix solution for a skateboard park. Both had skate parks built to be disposable likely banking on the idea it was a fad. Both used the prefabricated ramps by a company not worth mentioning. They installed these prefab ramps on a concrete slab and said, "here's your skate park." Now these parks have reached the end of their life and both cities are in the planning stages of building new concrete skate parks.
