A safety message from City Staff and the Sherriff’s Department

SAFETY

  • A helmet could mean the difference between a slight concussion, severe brain trauma, or even death.
  • Elbow and knee pads could mean the difference between minor bruising or shattered bones.
  • The more preventable injuries that occur in skate parks by not wearing safety gear, the more likely lawmakers could eventually outlaw skate parks, public or private.
  • Whether you like it or not, the younger riders look up to you more experienced (older) riders. You have more influence than you know–so wear your safety gear!
  • Your skate park is 40,000 square feet of unforgiving concrete, anything can happen.

UNTOLERATED Activity

  • Whether you (older riders) like it or not, the younger kids look up to you. You have more influence than you know, so behave and model the way!
  • The skate park was built for riding, not for: fighting, bullying, theft, drug use/sells, graffiti, or any other type of illegal behavior.
  • At any time, local law enforcement can cite any skate park user for breaking any of the posted “rules and regulations” or stop by the park to ensure the enjoyment of ALL.

LESSONS:

  • All actions have consequences, good or bad. Misuse of the park or violation of rules will result in park closures. WORK HARD TO KEEP YOUR  Skate Park open!
