Quincy City Council: Please help us build a skate park

A skatepark is needed so that kids have a safe place to skate instead of skating on the sidewalks where they bother pedestrians, and on streets where they can get injured by vehicles. As a growing sport favored by the millions around the world, skating, longboarding, skateboarding, rollerblading and BMX riding is a healthy form of exercise and entertainment that gets kids outside playing once more instead of sitting in front of computer and video games.  Skating is also known to bring communities together and helps in building relationships.  

Lets help build a better community for our youths and generations to follow.  JOIN THE MOVEMENT!

      When kids started playing baseball and basketball in the streets, facilities were built for them. We even have numerous tennis courts and volleyball facilities. All we want is to keep our kids safe and prevent a tragedy from happening. No one wants to lose a child!

      Skateboarding only SEEMS like "deviant" behavior. It's kids out being athletic, social, and imaginative. Giving them a place to do it where they won't get in trouble for trespass or damaging property can only be a good thing.
