Littlestown PA needs a fun, safe & legal Skatepark!
Littlestown Pennsylvania needs a fun, safe and legal Skatepark!
"More than anyone, young people need to feel like they are recognized
and appreciated by their communities. In too many places skateboarders
get the wrong message from local authorities who limit or outlaw
skateboarding and ignore its inherent benefits. Skateparks are the
solution. Every skatepark supports hundreds of kids that might otherwise
have nowhere to go."
- Tony Hawk Foundation
We are teaming up with Citadel Skateboarding Foundation to ask the
Borough of Littlestown for permission for our skate community to take
ownership of a space in town. Our goal is to initiate the building of a
professionally designed, community funded skatepark - a safe,
family-oriented environment that will benefit the entire community.
Outdoor skateparks are proven to increase both physical & mental health.
They entice people to step away from electronics and enjoy the fresh
air. A local skatepark would actively reduce complaints of damage to
private property and illicit behavior by giving riders a legal place to
skate. And finally, a skatepark has many positive economic impacts for a
small town. A skatepark will bring skaters and their families to
Littlestown to spend time at the park, eat at local restaurants, shop at
convenience stores, and engage with other small businesses.
