RE: Skate Park in Merrickville
My name is Myles Devlin and I am 11 years old and I am a student at Merrickville Public School. I enjoy riding my scooter and hanging out with my friends at the park and library. My friends and I enjoy going to the skate park in Kemptville, Brockville, or Carleton Place. I believe the children and teenagers who live in the Village would like to have a skate park in Merrickville.
If a skate park were built in the village, I think it would benefit residents and tourists. It would help keep children active and want to try new things. I think it would bring more families to visit the village, and they would want to come back too. The visitors would shop and eat at the restaurants or chip wagons while they are here. I believe that going to the skate park helps people come together and make new friends.
I have attached a picture below to show some different skate park ideas.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
