Skate park users reminded of rules

With the return of warmer weather, Muskego Parks and Recreation Department officials are reminding users of the InPro skate park to follow the posted rules.

In past years there have been incidences of bad behavior at the park, and the Parks and Recreation Board has given the Muskego Parks and Recreation Department the authority to close the skate park for an indefinite period of time if there are problems.

InPro skate park is located at Moorland Park, S7105 Moorland Road. Hours are sunrise to sunset, and the park is closed when surfaces are wet or icy.

Protective gear such as helmet, shoes and shirt are required, and knee and elbow pads and wrist guards are strongly recommended. An adult must accompany children between the ages of 6 and 10; no children younger than 6 are allowed to use the facility.

Bikes are prohibited.

A complete list of the rules is posted at the park.
