MIDLAND - It's a brewing issue at Midland's recreational parks, bikers want a special section added to Beal Park to accommodate BMX bikes.

Right now, Beal Park accommodates walkers, skaters and bikers.

But a younger crowd known for riding their BMX bikes at the park want more ramps and loops for them to practice on.

Several tickets and warnings have been given to the riders who go to the park.
The riders say if they add their own section, they won't keep getting into trouble.

Caitlin Wingo, an advocate for the skate park, met with Midland County officials on Tuesday to discuss the idea.

The Midland City Council is expected to vote on adding to the skate park on Thursday.
