Help Bring Back Local Skatepark


Recommended Posts

Trying to get my town to bring back my local skatepark. Support so far has been incredible from my peers. Contacted the mayor, alderman of my ward, and even Tony Hawk's "The Skatepark Project" to try and get something going. If you can sign the petition it would be greatly appreciated.

Meeting with the mayor, director of parks and rec and both their assistants tomorrow. I'm shook!

Have everything prepared and am going with my friend who is a long time skater (best in town) and his friend which is a professional ramp builder.

Yeah... I clicked the link. That's how I knew the name of the park. My question was because nowhere in the petition does it give the physical location. I was just curious.... As mentioned, I tried searching.

Thank you KING. 

Had a meeting with the mayor and parks and rec director, went better than I imagined it to. Mayor is super cool and agreed that our town does need a skatepark. We all thought of some potential locations where it could be built, then went to check them out after the meeting. We followed the parks and rec director to the spots. He was super helpful with information regarding what would have to happen to get the park going. Just need to get approval for the land and figure out the towns budget.

That's great! 

I work for a commercial GC as a PM and we build parks (very large) all the time. I haven't done a skate park yet but I've done a couple dog parks within one I did a couple years ago. haha
