Skateboarding is more than a sport it is a lifestyle and a culture that instills in people values such as determination, perseverance and co-operation. It has the ability to unify and generate friendships and a sense of community.
Our Youth Desperately Need Facilities. Please Support Them.
There are an increasing number of skateboarders, bike riders and inline skaters in Lyndoch and the general Barossa area, and a skate park for these people would make skating a much safer activity in these parts for the people living in and near Lyndoch.
By keeping these people off the roads and in a park there will be less injuries.
The added park would also be an attraction for residents and tourists alike, which would in turn bring the town a lot more attention and therefore more money to sustain the already beautiful area.
Business plans for an indoor skate park are in the process of being made.
We need your signature to help approve planning permission and get this idea off the ground. The skate park will be a friendly, well supervised environment for yourselves and your children/family with activities throughout the year! (especially winter and rainy days).
Help make this happen!
Proposed plans to put offices on the skatepark site remain.
The council have said that an alternative location for the skatepark would have to be provided.
BUT there is no specific alternative for relocating the park.
The draft plans are not specific enough to guarantee the future of the skatepark and we ask that you join us in petitioning the planning department of Kensington and Chelsea council further.
!Do not allow the loss of this amazing community resource!
Thank you for your support, please spread the word!
I am trying to get a good maintained skatepark in Scranton. There is no good skate parks in our community besides one for skateboards only.
I ride Bmx along with lots of other young and older kids in my area and we don't have any good skateparks in our area that we can ride and keep our selves out of trouble in.
I think if our community made a nice skate park it would lower the rate of kids getting in trouble for riding and skating in our town, which is definitely a problem especially in downtown Scranton and other areas that are fun to ride in but not safe.
We need a good park to keep our selves occupied and out of trouble. I think it would make a huge difference in our community.
The Pialba skate bowl in Hervey Bay, Queensland has the potential to be a popular skate park for skateboard, BMX and scooter riders if developed. At present the park is under utilised as it requires upgrades (re-surfacing, new coping) and consists of a single skate bowl.
If the bowl is upgraded and a plaza park built around it (ledges, stair sets, rails, abstract skateable ojects etc) it would provide a second venue for the youth of Hervey Bay to skate/ride as the current skate park on Torquay Road is at capacity.
The upgrade of the Pialba skate bowl would not only relieve some pressure on the Torquay Road skate park, it would also take advantage of the surrounding parks, water park, BBQ's etc and provide an excellent venue for the youth of Hervey Bay.
The Lahaina skatepark has recently been constructed with coping and angle iron on all the ledges to make it bicycle friendly. It is one of the 3 public skateparks on maui and is constructed entirly out of cement.
Bicycles and Skateboard have co-existed on maui for many years with skaters and bikers donating countless hours to help maintain and preserve these parks.
please sign my petition to take forward to wands worth council agreeing with me that wands worth has a lack of skating facility's and therefore should be built.
this will lower the number of kids without anything to do who cause trouble or stay at home and play 'X BOX or PS3' for hours on end and will provide a reletivley safe place to either skateboard, scooter, inline or BMX or meet up with friends and have FUN!!!. it should include
Since 2009 a project has been running in Stirling with the intention to rebuild the Skatepark within Kings Park, Stirling.
Over a number of years the Skatepark has suffered from frost damage and subsidence resulting in a facitlity no longer fit for the expanding and popular sports of BMX, Skateboarding, Rollerblading and Scootering.
We have therefore been campaiging and working hand in hand with Stirling Council and the Friends of Kings Park to have the skatepark rebuilt, providing a fit for purpose, modern facility which will enhance progression in the sports whilst providing a safe enviroment in which to do so.
So where are we now? We have an application for funding sitting with SportScotland, however, they want to know how much you support this project....
So please, sign this petition to show your support for the cause and lets get Stirling's youths the Skatepark they need!
Since the removal of ramps from Hillworth Park there has been a need for new skate, scooter and BMX facilities in Devizes. The mayor of Devizes and the area board have made public commitments to finding suitable sites and funding for these facilities for young people.
Young people do not want to skate in the streets or cause a nuisance to others, but do want somewhere to go where they can practice and enjoy skating, scooters and BMXs.
If your town doesn't have a skate park, your town IS a skate park.
There is plenty of spare land to build on.
We should encourage and maximize the use of bicycles as a means of transport in South Australia.
- Wider bike lanes on major roads.
- Tougher laws for careless drivers.
- An "Own Choice" helmet law for over 21's.
- An increase of bike trails and tracks in outer suburbs further linking busier areas.
Not only would this decrease the State's carbon emissions, but it would also increase health within population, boost tourism, create cultural awareness and studies also show riding a bike is beneficial to mental health.
I have a dream.

The Westridge subdivision Youth are seeking to have a safe skate and bike park that resides on the current buildable land owned by the Bartlett Park District in the Westridge subdivision.
Bartlett currently has (1) skate park at the Bartlett Community Center that is located more than 6 miles from the Westridge subdivision, which is not a safe travel distance for the youth west of route 59 to easily access and safely travel to.
Unity deserves to have a skate park. A place for teenagers to hang out and have fun. Every kid has a bike or skateboard but no where to ride. Unity's roads are terrible and they aren't getting fixed anytime soon.
There are many empty lots or spaces to put a skate park. It wouldn't cost a lot of money and it would be well worth it for how many people would want to go there. They have a dirt track but people keep trying to fix it and they just make it worse.
No one goes to the BMX track because it is hidden between the baseball diamonds and surrounded by grass. A skate park wouldn't have to be very big either just big enough for us to have fun.
Sittingbourne now severely lacks a skate park following the closure of Unreal Skatepark, leaving us with only a few places, all very small and a long way from the main town, and the places we do use are being slowly taken from us.

Skateboarding and rollerblading, and Bmx'ing are three of the fastest growing activities in the United States. There are more than 14 million participants. Most skaters ride wherever they can — in the streets, sidewalks and parking lots, and just about anywhere they aren’t chased from. Many places do not allow bikes, scooters, rollerblades, or skateboards.
Community groups and civic leaders have identified skateparks as an answer to the lack of suitable places to ride. In recent years, hundreds of municipalities have come to embrace the recreational and societal benefits of skateparks, and three new skateparks are built every week in the U.S.
Skateparks, even the more challenging ones, are far safer than kids rolling through busy streets, and there is a lot less damage to picnic tables,curbes, and other items throughout the community that skateboarders use as obstacles when they ride. In addition, when parks are built right — with local skater input and involvement throughout the process — the kids develop a sense of ownership and pride for the location.
Skateparks provide a place for skaters to go and practice the sport they love with friends. It gives them the opportunity to improve, to achieve small victories on a daily basis, to grow more confident in themselves and their own abilities.
The current facilities provided at Moorebank skatepark are not suitable for the existing local community of young families and visitors to the park. This park does not provide suitable shelter, accessible water or BBQ facilities. We are engaged in providing community events at this park biannually and feel that these previous issues need to be addressed immediately.
We need these upgrades to encourage more families to stay and participate with their children whilst they engage in this sport of bmx, scooter and skateboard riding.
Hello, we are trying to get trail in bo'ness (kinneil woods) and are asking all people interested in helping build the trails to sign this petition.
The Westway Development Trust are seeking planning permission to turn the area the skatepark is situated, under the A40, into a garden centre and office space. Their reasoning behind this "The Skatepark does not serve needs of the local youths".
We are setting up this petition to encourage Kensington and Chelsea Council not to allow planning permission and save Baysixty6 Skatepark.
The skateboard and BMX riders in Vineland, NJ have no legal park of their own to practice and ride. They are often ticketed and fined by the police because the parking lots and hand built sites that they practice in are not sanctioned by the city, county, or property owners, and are not safe places to play.
There are no legal facilities available for them other than the YMCA, which charges a fee too high for many of our students to pay.
A BMX/skatepark would provide a safe, fun family place to play. It will also give our young people an escape from our city's criminal element. The city has made baseball, basketball, tennis, and soccer facilities available for the children who have those interests. The skateboarders and BMX riders deserve the same consideration.
There are no decent and recent bmx games.
Over the past few years, the sport of "Dirt Jumping" has grown rapidly; especially among teenagers. Many of these teenagers have limited access to an enjoyable, safe, creative location to ride. When Challenge park was created, it provided few things for riders to enjoy. Now as it grows every year, we the riders would like to see large improvements. However challenge park has some very noticable flaws to many riders and there are things that can be done, to encourage more riders at challenge park, from beginner to expert.
We would like to suggest things such as a larger jump course with small, medium, and large lines. We feel that some freeride features such as skinnies, platforms, etc. Would be great enjoyment for all riders. To encourage the growth of other parts of the sport we would like to see a concrete or dirt pump track. Lastly we would like to see a foam pit put in where riders can enhance there skills in a risk free environment.
Currently the usage rules for the Niles Community Skate Park prohibit the use of bicycles within the skate park. These rules effectively leave community BMX bicyclists with no venue to participate in their chosen sport; save for potential trespass and/or possible public property damage.
A preliminary conversation held with the Niles Board of Parks and Recreation yielded positive input and has lead to this formation of a public petition to address the request for a skate park rules change. Our effort is to allow rules to be changed to allow the use of bicycles within the skate park.
The City Of Chlliwack needs a safe place for bicycle riders of all sorts/skateboarders/scooter riders etc to ride safely. Just last week i witnessed my best friend get beat up by 4 gang members because he was merely at the skatepark.
A safe place provided would help keep the children who use the parks to be completely safe due to the entry cost, which would deter crime perpetrators. Consider all the possible other thing young teens could be doing besides have an normal evening doing what they love, in a safe and healthy environment.
Penrith bmx club was formed in 2009 to provide a bmx track for the benefit of the community.
We need your support please if you are interested and want this facility to become a reality sign our petition and get behind what will be the best opportunity for the youth of Cumbria to take part in a Olympic sport at grass roots level.
There's 300 thousands pounds of funding available for this project get behind us. Thanks Penrith bmx club.
Sacramento has finally started building great skateparks, but only in places that are hard to get to for younger children that want something local. In the Rosemont are there is nowhere local to skate.
This petition is to build a skateboard park in Rosemont in one of the the few parks community parks that have land that hardly anyone uses.
Many parents don't have the time and/or money to take their children to the skateparks because of work, and parents would be more comfortable with there children near home.
The CSPA is an association committed to developing a public skateboarding and BMX facility in Cranford. We are currently applying for non-profit status with the State of NJ.
The CSPA was created by members of the local community who are skateboard and BMX advocates. Union County is lacking in quality skateboard and BMX facilities. Cranford in particular does not have a skate park. It is our goal to provide our youth with a safe place to practice and enjoy their sport.
