The Boston Parks and Recreation Department has recently started a city-wide feasibility study on where and how to incorporate more skate spots in park lands all over the city! We have been working with the Parks Department and design firms to make sure that skateboarder’s voices are heard in the process, and there will be a series of public meetings coming up in early May. If you want to have more spots and parks built in town, then now is the time to speak up and let them know what the scene wants!
Check this online survey set up to gather more information about the Boston skate scene’s needs: http://goo.gl/forms/rJnoOBBdC0
Below is the schedule of upcoming meetings. It is incredibly important for the skate scene to come out to these meetings, so do whatever you can to make it to the one in your neighborhood!
