Angela Baird started this petition to Port Macquarie Hastings Council

Thrumster Skate Park.

I am 12 years old and live in Port Macquarie, please read and support my petition.

In a age were children spend more time in front of a screen then ever before and we face an obesity epidemic the need for more inclusive and accessible free activities is paramount.

Skateparks are being seen in more and more communities because of the inclusive environment they offer our youth. Skateparks allow a free activity incorporating exercise to all walks of life. It provides a designated location for people of all ages to meet and socialise, why should the Thrumster area not have this opportunity for its ever-growing community.

The Thrumster area is growing at a rapid rate, at present there is no facilities for the community to gather, socialise and exercise outside of 2 parks for younger children and this is why they need a Skatepark. 

With traffic being a significant problem locally and public transport to and from Thrumster not being adequate, providing the Thrumster community with a skatepark would produce the amount of traffic on roads with no need for parents to travel to utilise other local skatepark facilities and boost the economic system with more support to local businesses.

Skateparks give people a sense of belonging and I believe a skatepark will help ensure Thrumster's low crime rate as the area grows by allowing youth a designated area to come together and exercise in an outdoor positive environment.

Our community is ready and welcomes Councils support in this matter, if you feel the same and would like to see action please support my petition.
