I have lived in Brentwood-Darlington for 5 years and seen skateboarders coming, going, and zooming by. I only started skateboarding 2 or 3 years ago, always skating in the street. Also, I went to my first skate park 2 months ago, and loved it, but It was supposed to take 30 minutes to get there, but in traffic the drive was even longer! So one day I was talking to my dad and I said, “I really wish we had a skatepark in our neighborhood.” He said, “Well then you should petition to get one,” and so that’s how it all started.I am working to convince the City to build a skate park in Brentwood Park.
This is a good idea for three reasons. First, it is a good idea because it would be an improvement and new attraction to our neighborhood. Second, in the city-wide 2008 “Skate Park Plan” they already approved there being a skate park in Brentwood Park. Third, the neighborhood association has already approved and said that they would support me.
