Best Answer

Skate parks were created to allow skateboarders to gather in a safer environment than on the streets. A lot of Skateboarding was being done on public and private properties that endangered the lives of the skateboarders and the non skateboarding public. Skake boarders were also an insurance liability for businesses and others. Skate parks gave them a better, safer place to skate, to gather and to share techniques.

People invented skateboards to have fun when the waters were to cold. Skateboards were built so people could "surf" in the chilly seasons. Originally called sidewalk surfing, people would attach trucks to the bottom of planks and ride them. ----
