Petition to Build a Skatepark
Looking for community support for this popular sport
Local resident Claire Baxter has set up a petition to establish the level of community support for a skatepark in Brentford.
If there is sufficient interest from the community she will then pursue it with Hounslow Council.
In the petition Claire says "Currently, there are limited facilities in Brentford for children and young people to occupy and engage themselves in a positive way, and with the redevelopment of Brentford, the need for a skatepark facility will likely increase along with the increased population in Brentford.
"Skateboarding offers a fun and dynamic opportunity to engage sport, and is relatively inexpensive. Skateboarding offers a range of health benefits, and a skateboarding park may offer further opportunity to engage the children young people of Brentford and Hounslow who choose to use it, and ensure they continue to meaningfully engage with the wider community".
The petition can be signed here.
