New concrete skatepark in Lincoln

This petition had 2,397 supporters

We are petitioning in order to show the demand for a new skatepark in Lincoln. With the 2020 Olympics just around the corner, and the sheer amount of skateboarders, bmx riders and inline skaters that live in the city, we believe that with enough signatures we can persuade the City of Lincoln Council to provide us with a local, top of the range skatepark.

Currently, we live with the daily struggle of trying to find somewhere to ride without being turned away by security guards and/or police officers. Our options are very limited, we have some small skateparks that have been built in the villages that surround Lincoln, but for people who don't drive they are very difficult to get to. They were also built with no input from the local riders, so for this reason they simply do not suit our needs. Our only other option is to travel to the nearest cities with skateparks which are Hull, Nottingham and Skegness.

There is currently one skatepark, located at moorland otherwise known as "the baccies" but not only is it totally impractical and very poorly built, it is also not even safe! There is not a single skateboarder that currently uses this facility for these reasons. 

Its time for the City of Lincoln Council to start taking us seriously, with the ever growing university bringing in more and more riders, and with the sports becoming more and more recognised by the world, we NEED this now more than ever! I believe that if we can display how strong the demand in Lincoln is, they absolutely have to follow suit with other cities and provide us with the facilities to do what we love.
