<quoted text>As for my child he is not a very athletic kid, i have tried that route with him. my kids go to the ymca and one plays sports but my other child is into skateboarding and there is nowhere he go to do just that. there are parks and they go to the parks but still no skateboarding. not many kids at 12 want to slide down the slide or swing on the swings. so i dont understand why its so hard for lansdale to build a skate park and why are you so against it
it's because he doesn't like the way the kids are out there he doesn't like the image of a bunch of lansdale kids all in the same place that sort of person seems to want those lost kids to dissapear

hence the park where kids could play instead of at your business. I think there is a ban on skateboarding in lansdale. That might be a downer for the idea. congratulations, Joe, you might have won this one. Im not sure about the ban though. if there was a spot for them to skateboard possibly a silly ban would be lifted because the kids wouldnt be doing it near or on other property where vandalism or destruction would normally occur. this might be a private venture. i wouldnt be one to stop a possible revenue for any town. a park doesnt always mean Free

i mean come on the kids diserve to have a skate park in there town. hell i might even go there once and a while, just to have fun. sence me and my son muved here he always ask me to go to the quacker town skate park, and i think that just to far. and on the plus side the kids might not get involved in drugs or other dangerous activites or just playing stooped shit.

Why do these ideas ALWAYS fall on the laps of the Lansdale tax payers??? Why not put this in Sellersville, Hatfield or anyother town in the North Penn Area??? Please remember there is liability that goes along with this idea. I don't want my taxes going up anymore than they have already.
But you would rather someone else taxes increase?

I'm not sure why someone would be opposed to this if it were approached in the right way.

You've got "Joe" crying about any negative he can dream up but not coming up with any solutions.

People who are interested in this skate park on the other hand should make some steps towards it instead of saying "I want it".

Get some formal interest behind the idea and have the kids become involved in not only *using* the skate park, but responsible for the building of the park and its upkeep.

1) The kids will learn some things in the process (including responsibility which a lot of people lack these days).

2) If said people using the skate park have also put time and effort into creating/maintaining the skate park, you'll most likely see it end up being a cleaner/safer place.

Get a group together and look for ways to make this happen (including asking local businesses for donations in exchange for advertising at said park)--not just saying "We want a skate park" and expecting the community to provide it.
