Camp Verde closes – then reopens skate park

Despite vandalism, Parks and Recreation doesn’t want to ‘punish kids who are behaving and having a good time’

Due to repeated vandalism, the Town of Camp Verde decided Thursday to close its skate park for eight days, then decided less than 24 hours later that it would immediately reopen the park.
