An impressive turnout at Tuesday night's Bend Parks and Rec Board meeting. Dozens of skateboarders were in attendance and testified about the need to turn Miller's Landing riverfront property near the Old Mill District into a skate park.  Community organizer Justin Gottlieb says Board members heard testimony for several hours. “The Board members sat there and attentively listened. I had the personal feeling that the general consensus in the room among those in favor of a skate park and those opposed to it, was the west side of Bend needs a skate park somewhere.” No decisions were made last night, but the Board expects to make a final decision this winter on how to develop the Miller's Landing Community Park.  Other ideas for the park include making it a dog park, or just leaving it as it is.
