The Astoria Skate Park has been cordoned off since late March while the Astoria Park Track is overrun with people.  Approximately half the people are not using masks or practicing social distancing. The field is overrun with people sunning themselves, playing soccer, and exercising. Presumably, all of this is forbidden according to NYC mandates.

We fail to see why the skate park is closed while all this activity continues, in close proximity, a mere 50 feet away. 

Skateboarding, biking, and riding scooters is a great source of exercise for many children and adults and it makes no sense to close one and not the other. We ask that the powers that be OPEN the Skate Park immediately or CLOSE the Track!
