Hello all! The name is Max Claypool. I am a local skateboarder that has been attending and also maintaining Shrimptown Skatepark religiously for the past 3 years. It is a great environment/park for families to come to with their kids for entertainment or even learning. There is also a playground right next to the park for them to enjoy. This is a fantastic park for the skaters to progress in their hobby, on all skill levels. The only downside is that there is no lights and trees overhead that drop huge walnuts and explode parts all over causing a hazard to all. I have seen numerous people fall from this problematic situation. With us being in Maryland with the season changes, we deal with darkness at the hour of 4 to 5 PM for about 4 months.... I’ve been asked and told for this skatepark to get lights by numerous parents, adult skaters, and even lots of kids. We all wish to be able to enjoy this park at a later hour and be able to exercise instead of sitting at home daydreaming about skateboarding and what we could be doing instead. Maryland only has 3 lit up skateparks within a 30 mile radius from Frederick which includes Hillcrest Skatepark, Olney Manor Skatepark, and Sagner Skatepark. This gives us very limited options of what parks we can skate and enjoy. If those have lights on year round why can’t we? Please consider helping your community out ! Thank you.
