The teens ( and also the smaller kids ) need more to do in the city that isn't just the playgrounds or trails. Many children would love to start skateboarding, an activity that has been known to grow friendships, get children active and even bring families together. 4+ years ago, the skate park at Woodland Park was torn down, was said that it would be replaced and never has been. It should be replaced like the people in the city were told it would be, replaced in the proper way which means with concrete instead of indoor wood that isn't treated correctly.

There are plenty of places that this could be placed, more than enough land that isn't currently being occupied. The city also has a BMX track, but it's privately owned. I suggest we have a BMX track along with a skate park put in, give the older kids something to do that is outside of school! Give children a safe haven to make friends, to get out of the house, and explore the city in a safer way. Portage always wants to have family events, but teenagers want someplace they can go off to and be with people around their age. Let's give this city that, the kids that, and the families.
