The Bellevue Skate Park shows up on KOMO 4 TV's "Little Heroes" feature this week. Kids in a summer camp at the indoor facility learn more than boarding technique.
In "Little Heroes overcome fear on the ramp," reporter Eric Johnson checks in with one young skater having a hard time "dropping in," a basic skating maneuver.
"We all remember being afraid to try something when we were kids," Johnson says. "Facing those fears is part of growing up, and it's a part of this week's episode of 'The Little Heroes.'"
The Bellevue Skate Park, in the Highland Community Center (14224 NE Bel-Red Road), is a newly-remodeled facility that features three- and six-foot mini ramps, wall rides, banks and ledges. To become a member of sign up for a class, go to Highland Skate Parks.
Outside at the center, the 12,000-square-foot Highland Skate Plaza features curbs, rails, stairs and "Jersey barriers." Bellevue is also home to the Crossroads Skate Bowl, which opened in 2006, and the Lakemont Skate Court, which opened in 2005.
