A growing movement of bikers, skateboarders, in-line skaters, wheelchairs and other users is gathering excitement in Springfield.
As there isn't currently a safe space for healthy activities like these, sharing the roadways and sidewalks has been a challenge for everyone to get around safely.
Self expression through tricks is a positive outlet to promote in Springfield where urban constraints limit access to active, outdoor exercise.
Numerous community groups are therefore coming together to promote the construction of the 413 Wheels Park in Springfield - a regional draw to the city in the name of healthy activity and economic development.
In an area where youth are abundantly exposed to video games, drug activity, and gang recruitment, our petition provides a voice to the people seeking a better way for the young people of Massachusetts' second poorest community.
Initial design of the park includes skate/bmx ramps, a pump track, and extended flat areas for cultivation of wheelie skills.
Please sign this petition to show our city officials that the 413 Wheels Park has broad support.
