Rollerskate in the city needs your support!

By johnboy 9 January 2012 23


A lunchtime observer of Roller Skate In The City in Garema Place has much to ponder.

One wonders at the lack of a hand rail at a roller rink, why the letters CBD have been embossed metre high onto the skating surface, and where all those disco balls have been hiding up until now?

Deeper questions arise, such as whether the padding lashed to the lamp post in the middle of the skating area adheres to any particular code or standard? And why an un-padded garden umbrella is out there next to the lamp post?

But most of all the passing lunchtime observer wonders where all the people are?

In any event, have no fear of not being able to get a spot on the rink.

What’s Your opinion?

I hope they stay – I noticed they were being allowed to park their cars there – never one to pass up the opportunity, I parked mine there for two hours the other day and got away with it … still planning to park at the Tent Embassy during the week – I’ll report back on that one! : )

Someone surprised at the lack of people in Canberra during January? You’re new in town, aren’t you?

Perhaps if they set up the rink in Batemans Bay (Little Canberra By the Sea) they might get a few more customers.

I miss the giant Chess-set that used to be where the goon-bag is now, anyone else remember?
