Petition in support of Bushy Park skatepark

Skateboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in Ireland, yet Ireland is the only country in Europe without proper public skateboarding facilities. With a youth population that is proportionally the highest in the EU, our capital city has the sum total of ZERO public skateparks. In this regard, Ireland is not only behind its European neighbours, but also many third world countries, including Peru, Brazil and Thailand.

This situation should be changing soon, as Dublin City Council plans for a skatepark in Bushy Park are well advanced, with a full budget in place. Bushy Park is an ideal site for such a facility, being the biggest park in Dublin City Councils jurisdiction and extremely well served by public transport.

HOWEVER it may not happen.

Incredibly, at a time of grave concern over childhood health and obesity, we now have a situation where certain elected public representatives in the Dublin South Central area, who claim to represent the interests of young people, are campaigning AGAINST the City Councils plans to provide a skatepark.

This flies in the face of promises made by ALL political parties prior to the last general election.

So this petition is addressed to the Councillors and TDs representing the Dublin South-Central area. We hope it will motivate those who currently back the plan to be more vocal in their support, and encourage those who currently object to the plan to rethink their position.

We, the undersigned wholeheartedly support Dublin City Councils plans to locate a skatepark in Bushy Park. We believe this to be an ideal location for the citys first public skatepark and feel it will be of enormous benefit to the health and well-being of the citys young people.
