Floodlights for Chesterfield skatepark
This is a petition to get floodlights installed at Chesterfield skatepark.
The skatepark was built so there would be somewhere for skateboarders/BMXers/rollerbladers to engage in their chosen activity without being on the streets/town centre where they get moved on because it isnt allowed.
This is fine during the months of the year when it stays light until late, but during the Autumn/Winter months it gets dark very early which means it is too dark to use the skatepark and ultimately they will find somewhere else to go, ie the town centre.
If floodlights were installed then people would would be able to use the skatepark during these months.
The lights wouldnt need to stay on all night, most skateparks with lights have the lights on a timer which generally cuts the lights around 10/11PM.
Please sign this petition as having light at the skatepark would benifit a lot of people, not just the people who use the skatepark but also parents who know their children have somewhere where they can go that is light and built for their chosen activity and not just wandering around town looking for somewhere to do it.
