Luke Creamer, 9, practices skating at the Columbia Skate Park on Tuesday. The park is located in Columbia Cosmopolitan Recreation Area. Creamer recently took up skating as the school year began and thinks skating in other parts of the city would be cool. "That'd be pretty cool," said Creamer. "I'd be able to do like small tricks [with my skateboard]."
