I would first like to tell you how fun skateboarding is. I started in December of 2016 and I got it down pretty quick. My brother was the one who influenced me and ever since as the new year rolling we’ve been skating non-stop.

Skateboarding has turned me into the person I am today, skateboarding really opened me up to go out and meet new friends who to this day I consider my brothers. Me and my brothers would go skate the local park “TeenCenter” everyday after school, and some would drive from Monument and we’d have the most fun.

This “TeenCenter” is a really cool place to hangout, skateboard, workout, play basketball, arcade games, eat snacks and beverages, they even throw little parties for everyone once in a while! The “TeenCenter” has turned me into the skater I am today, I still to this day skate when I can when I have the day off. But the “TeenCenter” has staff that you have to pass to get through to skate. The “TeenCenter” is also closed on Sunday.

The brothers and I would have this idea to play skate tag on our boards and it was the most fun, but the “TeenCenter” would kick us out for playing skate tag before because it was “too dangerous.” The “TeenCenter” also allows NO DRINKS out on skatepark, you have to go inside to get a drink. The “TeenCenter” promised us in 2019 that we would get a rebuild of the park by the end of the year, but it’s 2020 and all they did was paint the ramps. The “TeenCenter” has even also gave us a sorry excuse that we CANNOT SKATE because there is no staff to watch us multiple times, even when they have been open for 2 hours already. The staff never even watches us half of the time! Also the staff can take snacks and beverages out to the skatepark whenever they want, but us skaters can’t & I have video proof. 
I’m sorry but sometimes me and the homies wake up and we wanna go skate but we don’t want to go out of town or go to the “TeenCenter” due to how they treat us. We just wanna walk into a decent public skatepark without having to hop no fences or go through staff. JUST TO HAVE FUN AND SKATE. 

That’s why I’m taking the time to write this and I hope I can make a change here. I don’t mean to be a show off or anything but me and my brothers skate hard and we influence a bunch of others to skate, and we’ve seen people start skating because of us. I took a long time to type this and make this a serious matter here. PLEASE BUILD US A NEW PUBLIC LOCAL SKATEPARK IN 2020! #buildanewskatepark2020
