Briefly describe your skatepark facilities maintenance needs and estimated yearly costs?
Mainly removing graffiti. Less than $2,000.00 so far.
If your community were to redo or start over on your skatepark project, what would you do differently?
Does your municipality show a need and/or would you consider a larger or another skatepark facility?
No the City would not expand without the users helping to fundraise as they did when this one was built. It would be expansion only and not another park if it happened. We feel we have met the needs of the Burnsville Community.
What have you experienced and observed as barriers to providing quality skateboard facilities?
The users themselves. Many are great kids, but there are still a lot of them that are disrespectful to any authority asking them to follow the rules, etc.
Any additional thoughts/ideas to help communities provide quality skateparks?
