Jarrett Peterson started this petition to Director of Southaven Parks and Recreation department Wesley Brown

April 4th, 2019 the Southaven Skate park located on Rasco road in Southaven, Mississippi was torn down within 24 hours and without notice. This has caused a negative impact on the youth of Southaven already because we do not have anywhere else to go. One of the only outlets that were available and accessible for everyone has been taken away from us without any warning at all. This is a petition to make a new skate park or to return the original. 

Sign this petition to show the parks and recreation department of Southaven Mississippi that it was a huge mistake tearing down our skatepark.

I am a 16-year-old teenager that spent most of his time at the skatepark riding my bike. The Southaven Skate park has had a tremendous impact on my life for the better. Before I began riding my BMX there, I would spend most of my time indoors playing video games. I have met many of my closest friends at the skatepark. It continued to have a positive impact on me for over a year until it was taken away from us in a matter of hours. Now I and my friends have nowhere to partake in our favorite afternoon activity.
