New Skatepark in Tallahassee, Florida

This petition had 1,031 supporters

Tallahassee needs a new skatepark. While most cities have multiple skateparks with tons of different skating options, here in Tallahassee, we only have one. This skatepark has become very run down. The coping has begun to rust, the concrete is chipped, making it difficult to skate especially for beginners and younger kids. We don't need something big; a small park with street obstacles and a mini ramp would suffice. I started skating here in Tallahassee and have met some really awesome people through it. We have such a great community and everyone agrees that we need something new or possibly an upgrade of our current park. The University of Florida has a skatepark on campus as well as two other parks in the Gainesville area. Jacksonville has the newly built park on the beach, as well as thir legendary Kona skatepark and Monument. My friends and I have traveled over six hours in one day to go to places like Lake City and Jacksonville just for a new environment and park to skate in. A new park or an update in Tallahassee would make the skate community and even outside communities so happy.
