Surf City a perfect location
Would Huntington Beach benefit from a skate park? To me, that the answer is obvious. Of course, HB should have a skate park! Huntington Beach is the perfect location for a skate park, and anyone would have thought that HB would have been the first to have one, although, still, HB is way overdue and behind in the race of staying current with today's trends and today's young society.
I live on Brookhurst and Adams, and before they built the new Kohl's, I would say to all my friends, "Hey, wouldn't a skate park be the best thing to build in that parking lot?" It is surprising to find out that the plans were suggested so many years ago and that the city would prevent such an obvious idea. I am a mother of a 4-year-old, and I just hope that I don't have to take my daughter to Orange (across from a jail) to go to a skate park as soon as she becomes of age.
It makes no sense to have such an elaborate Main Street and all its shopping, etc., but nothing really for our youth to do. How can we expect them to stay out of trouble? It is so great that Vans would allow the skate park to be free! If there is anything myself or any of my neighbors, friends or fellow parents can do to help Vans make this long-overdue project a reality, we will do it.
Done with driving to Orange
We need this skate park. HB used to be known for skating too, and not being able to let the kids skate where they want is sad. The closest Vans is at the Block at Orange, and I'm over driving my son there. Staying in town would be fantastic!
