Last summer my kids got into skating and scootering. We started out small and did a few local parks but by the end of the summer we were traveling all the way to Ann Arbor. It was at Ann Arbor that my daughter fell and broker her wrist. So, my advise to you is to make sure they are wearing pads and helmets. The best time to hit the parks are earlier in the day because the older kids are still sleeping and it is much cooler.
