Ean McChesney started this petition to Baltimore Country Recreation & Parks and

Across Baltimore County, there are many private and public skateparks. But when you search "Skateparks near me" From the Woodlawn/Lochearn area, the closest parks are either in Baltimore City or Landsdowne. For the average person, its roughly a 20 minute drive to either Sandy Hills Park (Landsdowne) or 25 Minutes to Carrol Park Skatepark (Mt. Claire, in baltimore city.). But for the skaters/bmx riders in high/middle school in this area, that likely dont have means of transport to go 20-25 minutes away, the only option is the ride there on a Skateboard or a Bike. 

 So if that is the only option, the person will ride the bike or skateboard, and use energy meant to be used at the park, to get to the park, and Once arriving at the park, we often have to sit down and rest, or just turn around since we no longer have the energy. This often discourages us from going to said parks, and since we cant skate in the street without getting bombarded by police, mall security, and/or the random passerby, this leaves us with no other options other then to not skate at all or waste energy going to the park and then resting for a solid hour, or turning around and walking back due lack of initiative and/or energy. 

To solve this problem, i'm petitioning for a skatepark to be constructed in either gwynn oak park or powder mill park.
