We would like to build a skatepark in Murray Park. It will be about 250,000-300,000 dollars done and done. We would like to build the skatepark in the unused parking lot by the Murray Parks And Rec Office. We could Get Murray Park, signature, sponsors, and donors to the skate park. To prove this would benefit many people we could get 1,000 signatures.

One reason why this would be a good idea is that skaters skate and damage public property. But, if we have a skatepark then they will be able to skate and not damage the public property. I have personally seen damaged public tree basins, handicapped handrails, and wheelchair ramps.

Skaters in the Murray area are not to blame though. There are no skate parks in the Murray area. The closest skate park is Richard l Guthrie which is 2.7 miles away from the border of Murray city and is not accessible for most people. Kids like me that can not drive can't take themselves to the skate park. If we could put a skate park closer to people it would make opportunities for carpooling and Walking to reduce greenhouse gasses and create less of an inversion.

This is a great opportunity for public relations. It could get lots of people coming to Murray park and people visiting the Murray area. It could get people shopping local and small businesses in Murray. We could hold Public Ride Days That will get families out and active and meet new people.

This would be a great place for people to get out and relieve stress somewhere else. Some teenagers like myself have nowhere to go and exercise and no access to public skate parks. Usually, my parents don't want to drive me to a sandy skate park because it wastes gas. My friend and I usually find ourselves looking for what to do because we have nowhere to ride.

This land would be used more than just a parking lot. People would go there every day and use it. The skate parks are just too far away. This would help so much in getting more recreation in that area and it could also be a place for training with coaches or private lessons too.
