SPOKANE, Wash. —

The Spokane Parks Board is thinking about moving a skate park from downtown Spokane to Riverfront Park.

Police say the skate park has become a magnet for the homeless and crime.

Parks spokesman Leroy Eadie told KREM there are safety concerns at the park and not a lot of recreational users.

Funding for a new park would come from a park bond issue if it's approved next year by voters.
