Easthampton Skate Park started this petition to Mayor LaChapelle

In the 90's Easthampton, Massachusetts had a pre-fabricated skate park built by Scituate Concrete Company. This company constructed hundreds of poorly built skate parks across New England. Some of these parks still exist, but many have been torn down due to their poor condition or lack of functionality.

Easthampton went the route of tearing theirs down, without a plan to construct a new one. The old park was behind Eastworks. At the time Eastworks was a mostly vacant, dilapidated old mill building. In 2020 Eastworks has become a cultural hub of the region that holds restaurants, art galleries, and even a recreational marijuana facility. The site of the old skatepark is now a playground.

The Mayor is well aware of our intent to build a new skate park in Easthampton. In fact, she supports the movement. The reason we are creating this petition is to keep momentum going on a project that is sure to give thousands of people in the Pioneer Valley access to a modern, state of the art skateboard complex while also providing stimulus to the businesses of Easthampton due to increased visibility via skate park tourism.

Please help us in spreading the word while also putting pressure on the City that this is something we are determined to see through to the end.
