We, the citizens of San Diego, collectively recognize the imperative need for a skatepark in Pacific Beach.
The community of young kids and teens skating within the pacific beach area has grown exponentially in the last year, these impressionable youths desire a skate park, a place where they are not moved along by security and police. Skateboarding has been proven in university studies to improve physical health and promote positive mental health. Following it’s olympic inclusion, we will see some of San Diego’s very own residents compete on a world stage for the gold medal in the summer of 2021.
Furthermore, a skatepark in view of the ocean would provide an added tourist attraction as well as a potential venue for large events such as Street League skateboarding or X-Games.
