Nick Gallagher started this petition to Coatbridge South Councillors

This petition requests that Coatbridge South Councillors work with North Lanarkshire Council to build a skate park in Shawhead or Whifflet Park nearby.

With indoor recreational facilities impacted by COVID-19 and having a young son, I am hoping that collectively we can add something new to the area, meaning less screen time, and instead, kids get to spend more time in the fresh air with their friends.

West end park benefited from funding from the local development programme back in 2010.

Coatbridge local area partnership convener Jim Brooks, who represented Coatbridge South, said at the time: “West End Park is very popular with the community.

 “This excellent facility gives young people a modern, exciting space to enjoy, and I am grateful for all the support we have had from them and the Friends group in getting the skate park up and running.”

The new skatepark will be a free-to-use, safe, inclusive and family orientated sports facility for users of all ages to enjoy. Skate parks provide a unique opportunity for young people to spend time together, socialise (where physical distancing can be maintained) and keep fit.

Skateparks can be unobtrusively integrated into the urban landscape, and that with the proper design skateparks can be places enjoyed by the wider community.

Please show your support for this initiative to establish a local skate/bike/scooter park in the community that everyone can enjoy.
