Skate-park for Townhill
Townhill Park situated in the village of Townhill in Dunfermline is a fantastic place for children to play and socialise, however it sadly doesn’t cater for children older than around P1/P2.
The aim of this petition is to collect signatures from the people in the community and surrounding areas who would like to see a purpose-built skate-park built in Townhill Park.
Skate parks appeal to a broad cross section of users who appreciate the freedom to practice their chosen sport in a purpose built facility, without the restrictions of more traditional team sports. Increasingly skate-parks are seen as integral parts of a local community and the last 10 years have seen an explosion in the number of well-constructed, outdoor concrete facilities across Scotland.
A skate park facility would bring children together and provide an excellent, safe place for kids to play. Due to the increase in popularity with scooting and skating it has brought with it, it’s own code of conduct between children.
They respect, teach, and watch out for each other – these are fundamental characteristics that are being lost in today’s society. A strong factor in these changes in society can be down to an increase in computers and ‘screen time’ for today's kids; Children are becoming insular and solitary.
