City to install monitoring system at McDowell Mountain Ranch Skate Park
To more effectively monitor skate park activities, McDowell Mountain Ranch Skate park users will be required to enter the facility with an access card beginning July 15, 2013.

The monitoring system tracks users as they enter the facility.
