The Martinsville/Henry County Skate Park sign now

We are in drastic need of a skate park.

We, as skate boarders understand that skateboarding on public or private property is illegal, and at times does cause cosmetic damage. Thus, there is no place to skate safely and legally in Martinsville and Henry County

The closest park is at LEAST a 40 minute drive outside the county. That's tax dollars going elsewhere. WE NEED A SKATE PARK!

As some maybe aware of, Vancouver has already made skateboarding legal in the city, becoming Canadas most "skate friendly" city in the country. Vancouvers way of dealing with skate boarders isn't to try and stop them, but to try and give them space where they can skate safely. In the city alone, there is over 20 skate parks, with a new, state of the art "street style" skate park being built.

As far as a location, good areas would be in J. Frank Wilson Memorial Park in the city, Jack E. Dalton Park in the county, or construct a skate park in a vacant lot or building, with the theme of street style, so it would blend in seamlessly with the surrounding areas.
The city and the county need to come together to help build a skate park for the benefit of the whole community and to enhance the quality of life for people in the area.

To us it is simple:

Skate boarders are not welcome in private or public sectors.

There are charities that can help build a new park.

Skate boarders would help build it.

The sport is only going to get bigger, and problems with skating on private property is going to get worse.

So, we give our support and we ask for yours.

Spread the word by sending the link to this petition (at the very top of the page) to as many people as possible.Your comments on this petition are also very welcome.

We are non political and have no religious affiliations.

We need to get this to as many people as possible so please use your personal influence. If you think you can help or you know someone who canlike a celebrity patron, a pro-bono charity lawyer or accountantor you can get this some good press coveragethen please...go for it.
