A skatepark needs to be built in local villages outside of Ipswich to stop and cut down on the amount of drug users and help get people off the streets taking drugs and making them pick up a hobbies. There are many places where a skatepark should be built for example Witnesham, as it has plenty of un-used open space which would be perfect for skateboarding facilities. As the rising number of people taking an interest in skateboarding and other sports like scooter riding and rollerskating grows the amount of people at a skatepark grows and the only local parks can be found in Ipswich which already has a high number or riders in the town itself makes it normally full or very busy, forcing people to ride in the street causing a hazard for people who are waking or shopping though the street as well as making a noise. People see the skatepark as a dodgey place or somewhere for drug dealers and kids that aren’t in a great place to hang out where as the people that regularly visit the park will know that this is very rarely the case. Witnesham is what I would describe as a quiet village and would be perfect for a skatepark as it is secluded (Which means the little noise that is made will only be heard by a few people) and it is very easy to access, it is very unlikely or merely unthought of that it would be a gathering point of drug users and if it was it would most likely only be at night. This would also be perfect for younger children who’s parents are not comfortable bringing them to skateparks in Ipswich and don’t have time to drive to places like Woodbridge or Framlingham. I do believe that doing so in building this skatepark in Witnesham it would give children something to do and help cut down on obesity as it is getting them active which is a major problem in today’s society! It will also bring people together and form friendship groups and help bring children together as I know this is true for me and many other skateboarders!! I strongly believe this would be a beneficial move in our society and that is why I have taken the time to start this petition!
