Fundraiser for the Boro Skatepark Project TODAY starting at 5 pm at Zaxby’s on Fair Road. A percentage of all sales goes to this project! Come out and show your support!
The Boro Skatepark Project is a group and voice of the community whose mission is to bring an admission-free skate park to the Statesboro community. We believe its impact will not only benefit skaters, but also those who have never stood on a board in their life. Any public park can attract unsavory elements, but skate parks often deter disruptive behavior and vagrancy because skaters populate the park. Without a skate park in the vicinity, skaters are forced into the streets.
Support Boro Skatepark Project at local meetings!
Meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Honey Bowen Building! Meetings start at 5 p.m.
10 Reasons for a Skate Park:
1. Skateboarders need safe places to recreate.
2. Skate parks, if designed and constructed correctly, are fiscally conservative and require very little maintenance.
3. Skateboarding is a multi-million dollar industry.
4. A skate park can attract skateboarding tourists if designed to do so.
5. With national health issues looming for today’s youth, it’s time to offer a greater number of healthy, athletic choices.
6. The cost to participate is accessible to every economic class.
7. Skating in a park is much safer than skating in the streets.
8. Skate parks can draw skateboarders away from less appropriate areas.
9. If a city doesn’t have a skate park, it is a skate park.
10. In the future, there are going to be many legitimate places to skate in the city. The time to embark on that positive future is now.
