Help save Southsea Skatepark!

If you're reading this blog then you need to click on the link below and sign the E-petition. It will only take you 2 minutes and you could save Southsea skatepark from closing. This park has spawned some of the best British riders and is home to the King of Concrete event. Can't bear to have a park so rich in BMX history to close... so go spread the word. NOW!

"The future of Southsea skatepark is looking uncertain. Portsmouth City Council is preparing to close the park in September of this year unless a suitable plan can be made in conjunction with a private party that would need to take over the lease of the facilities. A private party with the full support of current skatepark users has approached the council and their business plan was rejected due to out-dated views expressed by council members as to the usage and potential user groups associated with the park. The users of the park; skateboarders, bmx and inline have united To form a user group that will hopefully convince the Local and National Government that these facilities are a necessary part of the local community and that the park is unique and an investment in the future of all active members of the public young and old. Please add your support if you use the park, have ever used the park or if you value a genuine piece of British skate and sporting heritage and the right to campaign for adequate sporting and recreational facilities for the present and future.

Thank you

The Southsea Skate Park Users Group
