N. Fulton offers safe zones to test bikes and other toys on Christmas

Did you buy your child a bike for Christmas? How about a scooter, or skates?

You might be asking yourself when they unwrap it, “where can they ride this thing?” Taking a rookie bike-rider into the road could be unsafe.

But Roswell has options to solve your problem. The city has several areas it has designated as “Holiday Toy Safer-Play Areas.” These are spots where kids can break in bikes or scooters without the fear of crashing into someone or something. The areas will be barricaded.

Families can bring bikes, scooters, skateboards, remote-control vehicles and other toys that require safe, open spaces.

These areas will not be staffed by the city, and Roswell highly recommends that all children be accompanied by adult supervision.
