Best Park for Paranoia

Santa Rita Skate Park

What's to worry about, with pre-teens at their most awkward physical stage hurtling over concrete terra-forms? All this in the environs of a hobo jungle at the lovely Santa Rita Park, where on the second and fourth Sunday of every month, while wearing your ripped jeans and Thrasher mag T-shirt, you can get a free sandwich from friendly church-going folk who will share the good word with you as the train hurtles past on its way to Nogales. The park is free and open from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
