Smithtown needs a skatepark

Brooklyn, NY

The town of smithtown waste tax money on useless and pointless things. They made abig deal about building the "armory park." Well lets see. everytime i go there (which is like once a month) i see that theres only 2 cars there.(usual one is the securities car) You call that a park? Its a field with crab grass and weeds with asphalt around it. I mean seriusly. The town of smithtown should be embarrased. We need a skatepark because skateboarders are being kicked out of everywhere. We don't cause any problems. I dont get it. Do you just was us to sit home and play videos games all day. A skatepark would cost a lot less than a new turf field for the football team who doesn't win any games. You can jsut put a nice smooth cement square thats about an acre big and we will be happy. I dont get why it's so much to do. If you read this and you work or know someone who works for Smithtown Parks or Town hall, Bring this up. I think that it will a differnce in the community ina good way.

im a 16 year old skateboard enthusiast from nesconset. they have recently added a skatepark to the armory. the kids from nesconset, smithtown, stjames, sachem, and ronkonkoma are happy to see that they have done something with skateboarding at the armory. a few things i found to not make sense is that on sundays in the fall and spring the parking lot is totally full with cars, but every other day there are 2 cars of people running the track and 10 other cars at the skatepark. they choose to put the skatepark inbetween the hockey rink and tennis courts. there are massive gruops of upcoming skateboarders from all over the sland that have been going to the armory lately. i know during thisn recession a skatepark isnt whatsmost important but no matter where you go to ride your skateboard either random people, store owners, or cops will make the session a bust in 45 minute sometimes less. as skateboarders we dont need much to be happy but you can tell the armory skatepark and no influences of skateboarders to help plan out where ramps went or rails or types of rails are there. ive heard rumors that they are going to add and make it bigger.

Why dont we just tear down the Smithhaven mall too because it is attracting garbage. Your argument is stupid. The rent-a-cops that ride around in "Smithtown" cop cars need to patrol the park. It's time for them to earn their money with the insane property taxes we pay.
taxed too much

more waste of money
politics dictating how money is spent
government should not be involved in providing entertainment for the public
they want to skate let the private industry build it and let them pay if it cannot be supported it is not needed
