Did You Roller Skate at Altgeld Gardens?

By | December 26, 2017

Altgeld GardensAltgeld Gardens is one of those little known places where people roller skated in Chicago for two reasons.

First, Altgeld is a community located on Chicago’s far south side with limited access to public transportation.

Second, it was a community where residents were not very trusting of outsiders.

But the people who lived in Altgeld got their skate on! So, to all of my roller skaters: please share your memories in the comment box below and send pictures you’re willing to share to submissions at realskatestories dot com.
