A group of tri-state BMX riders host a competition at Evansville's Lamasco Skate Park to show the city they want a new place to ride. Orgnanizers say local skating and BMX enthusiasts have outgrown Lamasco Park. They say the equpiment is in disrepair and covered in grafitti. They're calling on Evansville City Council to approve Roberts Park because the plans call for a concrete skate park.
"A lot of the city council members are definitely on board with the idea but the budget is pretty low right now so what we've been told from several city council members is just show out support and that's why we have everyone out here today", said Michael Barrow.
Organizers say some skaters and bikers travel more than four hours away to use concrete skate parks. Right now the majority of council members appear to be against breaking ground on the park next year because of budgeting.
