Hello community members and skateboarders, I am a local skateboarder in the south shore area who has been frequenting Marshfield “Uncle Bud” Skatepark before it was remodeled. As a long time local and skater, I love our skatepark and the community behind it. Ever since I’ve started skating here, there has been one thing missing, LIGHTS!

   Our skatepark has been devoid of lights for too long. Lights are crucial for many reasons safety, fun, and utility. Skating at night increases the risk of danger due to the inability of awareness, caused by lack of light. If you can’t see where you are going, you are more likely to collide into someone or something, causing possible fractures or concussions. Lights would easily solve this problem and make our skatepark a safer place.

We have so little time in the day to enjoy our favorite activity, especially during the winter! Short New England winters or intense summer heat can cut the fun short. A lot of us are commuting home from Boston, and with rush hour traffic our day light is restricted. With lights we can wait to skate till it’s cool at dusk, or skate those early nights in the winter.

Skateboarding is an amazing activity that brings friends closer and strengthens the community. It is great for mental health, one of the best stress relievers, as well as being great for your physical health. More time to skate is more fun to be had, more memories to make, and better health for ourselves. 

I am proposing the town installs lights to our beloved skatepark, and I ask your for your help in achieving this goal. Sign the petition and share with your friends and family! Show the town how much we love this skatepark!
