A place to skate

We kids of East Longmeadow (who skateboard at least) are very tired of going to Springfield, Somers, or West Springfield just to get to skateboard at a good skate park. If we had a good skate park in our town, we would not be in parking lots, on the streets, and bothering businesses. So we would like to have a new skate park. And if you ask where to put it, we're way ahead of you. We could put it in Heritage Park, or where the old skate park used to be (if there is nothing there now).

We are planning to fundraise to pay for the ramps, and perhaps a membership fee to cover maintenance. If you would like to contribute, call 525-6432.
