Help salvage Burr Park before it's taken/auctioned away.

As a growing community, we have numerous playgrounds, baseball/soccer fields, basketball courts, etc but up until recently we've only had one skatepark. With the completion of our 2nd skatepark we've had a vast expansion of newcome skateboarders and visitors from out of town. The new park hasn't been able to accommodate the current and overflow of visitors coming in. This congestion has caused discouragement to our visitors, our beginner riders and pushes some our most experienced skaters out. While this is not necessarily a negative thing, but with growth comes expansion and we need to act fast to accommodate it. It is clear, our city needs two skateparks and we know it could take time for an ultimate solution, but we do have options to accommodate us in the meantime. 

Our best and obvious solution would be to expand our new skatepark beyond the pillars but that option could not come soon enough.

We are proposing a quicker and less expensive solution to our problem. 

We either save Burr Park as it is. With the possiblity of new equipment in the near future.

Or salvage the equipment from Burr Park and transfer it to Bluebonnet Park temporarily. (Until new equipment is attained or a street park expansion plan is drawn up) Inevitably, flat ground concrete would need to be in place to support the equipment. 

Either solution would help sustain and balance the current and overflow of visitors utilizing our parks without displacing or turning anyone away.

Please, sign, share and help spread concern on this growing matter. Your contribution matters!
