Dear city, don’t forget the skateboarders

A new water park sounds fine, but where is the City of Terrace's love for its skatepark?

Dear Sir:

So you, the City of Terrace, are going to install a new water park in George Little Park, but you will then put tar over our skatepark and paint it black.

You, the City of Terrace, should add to our skatepark or the band shelter, also known as the plaza, because when you paint it or put tar over it, it just makes the skatepark worse than it already is.

You then force kids and teens to start riding on the street, which means riding in a spot that was not meant for biking/skateboarding – but kids will still ride there.

That’s causing businesses to either kick them off or call the cops.

I’m not trying to be mean or anything. I would just like to see some new things or a new skatepark, which will most likely not happen, or add to the plaza.

Rhys Beeton,

Terrace, B.C.
