Bikers grind on metal pegs; skateboarders grind on metal trucks. If the skatepark is properly designed, it will be able to withstand any kind of grind.
Skateparks in England—Romford and South Sea, for instance—have allowed bikes from their opening days in the 1970s and are still in perfect operating condition. Canada and Australia boast many similar examples. Just because the term “skatepark” doesn’t have the word “bike” in it doesn’t mean bikes don’t belong.
“Skatepark” has become a generic term for ramp facility, in the same way that Xerox has become a generic term for photocopies, or Kleenex for facial tissues—it’s simple and easy to say.
