New Lights at Barracks Skatepark for After-dark Use

This petition had 760 supporters


During outdoor activity season (spring/summer/fall) there are a lot of people in London that enjoy using the outdoor skateparks here in London. Specifically, Barracks Skatepark (what users refer to it as) at 656 Elizabeth St. A problem people are facing is lack of daylight later in the day, myself being one of them. People working jobs usually get off work at around 4-5pm. During certain times of the year, that will only give them 1hr to 20mins of daylight left to use this facility. All of this can be solved by installing a few new lights at Barracks Skatepark. These new lights can be put on a timer so that they shut off at a certain time of night. I know personally of a couple skate parks in Kitchener that use lights after dark and turn off at 11pm. This way people who want to use the facility after dark, to persue their passion of BMX, skateboarding, scootering, etc., can do so. Please, City of London, read and consider this.

Thank you,
