Skate Park for Bradford On Avon

Skate Park for Bradford On Avon

The only existing set of skate ramps in BOA (at Poulton Park) is soon to be removed, and is currently unusable and unsafe. This petition requests that Bradford On Avon Town Councillors work with Wiltshire Council to build a skate park to replace this lost resource.

Why is this important?

Skateboarding, scootering and associated activities are hugely popular with young people. There is a high demand for somewhere safe and exciting in the town for skaters to use. At present, most skaters use the station car park. They deserve something better. There is a great deal of evidence to suggest that provision of resources like skate parks greatly reduces youth crime and unrest, which benefits the local community and contributes to making towns more vibrant places to live.

How it will be delivered

The petition will be delivered to Bradford On Avon Town Councillors. There are Council meetings on 17th and 23rd May relevant to this campaign, so the petition will also be presented at these.


Reasons for signing

  • A great activity for kids. They need a better place than the bottom of the station car park.
  • We voted for the new town council, please help the youth in BOA. They need a location to meet, enjoy themselves and be active.
  • New skate park desperately needed for the BoA youth
