Learning to skate at the Norwich skate park
Norwich — With vaccinations on the rise along with temperatures, people are starting to spend more time outside, including at the Donald Alfiero Skatepark on Tuesday.
"This counts as gym class, I think," Marianne Nicholas of Norwich said as she watched her son, Luke, 11, skateboard. She opted to home-school her son this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic and said they try to take as much advantage of nice weather as they can. Luke started skateboarding about two weeks ago.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the high 50s to the low 60s the rest of the week.
