Park status:

The current skate park we have is very small and old with cracked floors and broken rails. There really isn’t much you can learn in this park or improve after some point. the park gets packed a lot of the time with more than 5 people it gets uncomfortable and you have to stop frequently or wait until someone takes their turn.

Not skater friendly:

The park isn’t good for neither beginners or experienced skaters. Beginners don’t have enough space to get comfortable riding at first especially if there are other skaters in the park. Especially when parents bring their younger kids just to ride down the one ramp we have we have to be more careful no to crash into them or go near that side of the park. 

Great activity for kids to turn to:

luckily, we don’t have a huge problem with criminal activity here but a lot of kids aren’t raised right and do end up in the wrong crowds. A better skate park would give more kids an interest to an activity they can do after school or on the weekends and it’s a good exercise too. Skating creates a good community and builds character. Kids will make friends easier and do something else besides play video games all day or turn to other activities parents don’t want. There are already some skaters who frequently go to the park who enjoy skating and learning with friends. 
 
Kids will stay in the park:

If a concern of the city is that skaters will try to go street skating and start damaging private property, this will not happen. There are very few spots in San Luis where skating is a good idea to do more tricks or anything remotely close to that. And the few spots there are, won’t be somewhere where kids can damage anything. 

Solution:

make the park bigger with the help of local skaters who know what will be needed or essential. The park needs better rails both longer and different heights, more ramps or banks to drop in on, different height manual pads, and the most important is more ground area we can’t have all of this in the current flat are we have. We need more run up space and space so multiple skaters will be able to skate at the same time. There are enough skaters who are adults who still go skate and would be willing to take their time to do anything to make our park better.
