Skate Community of Winchester started this petition to City Council of Winchester and

Zumiez in the Apple Blossom Mall is teaming up with local community support to introduce a skatepark to Winchester. The new skatepark will be a free-to-use, safe, inclusive and family orientated sports facility for users of all ages. Professionally designed, with design input from local skatepark users.

Skateparks are proven to increase health, well-being, & community cohesion whilst reducing anxiety, and encouraging exercise. The skatepark will not only benefit skatepark users, it will enhance the community as a safe and healthy alternative to drugs or destructive behavior for Winchesters youth.
