Amanda Mottram started this petition to Maplewood Township Committee

The Recreation Department has made arrangements to replace the outdoor skating rink at DeHart Park in Maplewood with a basketball court. Unlike the tennis court located in the park, the skate rink is a unique recreational resource to Maplewood. Removing it would be a tremendous loss to the community.

If you took just a stroll past the park on a weekend afternoon, you would see the skate rink overflowing with scooters, roller skaters, and other kids using it...and you would likely find the tennis court sitting empty next to it.

While the need for a basketball court is important, it should not be at the expense of such a special asset to the community. Please sign this petition to ask the Recreation Department to reconsider this decision and choose, instead, to use the tennis court as the location for the basketball court. This would also be a great opportunity to improve the condition of the rink. We truly hope that we will not lose a well utilized and much loved rink.
