Naples, Florida needs local skate park open to the public with free access. Naples, Florida/Collier County only has one skate park and it costs a membership fee to skate there. I personally feel as though naples should have a free open park available to the public. Skating is becoming a bigger trend, and one park is not enough for the amount of people that starting to skate. Skating in and of itself is a dangerous sport and could be a liability to the City of Naples, but this could be counteracted with a sign that warns skaters and other users about its dangers. The sign could warn users that skating is a dangerous sport and could cause serious injury if not done properly and with the proper equipment. Studies have shown that teens that participate in a sports activity outside of school are less likely to get involved with drugs and alcohol or legal trouble. An open skate park could be extremely beneficial to the youth of Naples and serve as an outlet for teens and help prevent drug and alcohol usage. Lower income teens may not be able to pay the membership fee it costs to skate at the only available skate park Naples has. The skate park I am proposing could help lower income teens and allow for them to get into an extracurricular activity that could be beneficial to their health and social life. With obesity becoming more and more common within the youth of america it is crucial for our city to take a step in the right direction and provide more opportunities to get exercise. Exercise should be provided in different forms so that more people with different interests and social economic backgrounds can get exercise in they way that best suits them.
