We need a Skatepark

This petition is about what are the benefits of having a skate park in your community.Skateboarding is a positive and healthy activity for today’s kids that is just as safe, or safer, than many traditional physical activities. Studies indicate that 1/3 of all skateboarding injuries occur in a beginning skater’s first weeks of skating. When injuries due occur in experienced skaters it most commonly attributed to irregular riding surfaces. Accordion to the Canadian Amateur Skateboarding Association only 5% of all skateboarding injuries actually occur in skateparks. From this data it is only logical to conclude that the majority of skateboarding injuries are preventable, and that skateboarding can be an even safer activity when taught properly in a controlled environment. http://www.dropintoskateboarding.com/stats.php
