Our goal is to see more quality public skate parks built in Bradenton FL. We are currently proposing a plan and the ability to appoint funds in the future for the construction of skate parks within the county over the next ten yrs, utilizing the space already allocated for skateboarding at GT Bray, Blackstone & the Anna Maria skate parks. We are also working with other FL skateboarding advocacy groups & state representatives to remove the waiver clause from the FL statute that cause some public skate parks to require waivers, limited hours & unnecessary rules, hindering the overall user experience. With the current use/success of the Riverwalk skate park, there is a demand. GT Bray, like most modular skate parks, are old & outdated in design, janky in construction, but the location is great & could have & compound the same kind of use & success that we are seeing with the Riverwalk skate park. Please join us in establishing a path to update existing manatee county skate parks that will better serve the community for the long run.
