Weymouth has some open air skatepark already, all are now several years old and need major work done including Radipole, and Littlemoor. In addition there is the Front skatepark a registered charity that provides a great service as cheap as possible but is still to much for some people and also not open air. There is also the new pump track in Wyke which is very limited and was built with little consultation to the skating community. Skateparks are a cost effective and durable asset to any community they keep young people fit healthy and off the street. With the child obesity crisis we face and Weymouth suffering from high levels of deprivation it is vital that young people are consulted and listed in regards to services and community assets. Portland and Dorchester have great concrete open air skateparks and are very well used by the community. Skating is becoming more and more recognised as a legitimate sporting activity and is now included in the Olympics. Like footballs, rugby and other sports skating encourages youth people to exercise, get out of the house and socialise.
