BROOKLYN - The newly renovated Squibb Park has been transformed from a desolate area to a hub for kids, teenagers and even adults to enjoy.

Residents say the space at Columbia Heights and Middagh Street used to be a place where a lot of fights broke out, until the group Open Road of New York turned it into a skater's paradise.

With its specially coated flat pavement, the park has become a safe place for skateboarders and rollerbladers to go and stay out of the streets.

The group also plans to build small obstacles that resemble curves and sidewalks.
