What an awesome thing to do! It's great to read about adults supporting kids acivities, especially nice to see someone who is a role model to the kids doing such positive things.

I am a biker and we need a skatepark so we can get off the streets and learn something new. This will be great for the community, and i will get a couple of my friends to help build it to!

i think that our new skatepark should be for bikes and skateboards. there is alot more bikers in this town and it's not right that it would be just for skaters. I've been waiting for a long time for a new park and if it's gonna be just for skaters then thats just stupid. i'm not gonna travel to green briar just to go to a skatepark that doesn't even have jumps big enough for us. so honestly us bikers need a skatepark that is big enough and close enough for us to get to. So i think that the new skatepark should be for both bikers and skaters.

yea if its only gonna be for skaters then us bikers will just break in any way cuz its not fair. what would be smart is to set a time thatt the bikers and enjoy the park and another time the skaters can do the same if its insurance problems. If it isn't then us bikers have good relationships with the skaters and have no problems, we can share the park
