Families bring their children, stay for lunch, and shop at local businesses. This is an opportunity to promote contests, attract professional skaters and advertise the Active Largo culture.
An open running track. Sidewalks are hard on shoes and knees. Or work with schools to open them after hours and weekends. I just want to run without worrying about dog walkers, strollers or cars.
