TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the Assembly:

The state of the Gungahlin Skate Park that needs refurbishing and installation of lights.

The existing concrete dates from the 90s and is worn, cracked, with steel reinforcing bars poking through the surface.

Lights at Gungahlin skate park will allow the park to open up for more usage and also will have many benefits to it in both mental and physical health, and also to children education.

- It would allow people to come down to the skate park after work and school to enjoy what we think is the best park in Canberra so they don’t have to skip school and get a full education they need.

- A lot of people use BMX, scooter, skateboard and even their roller blades as an escape from their thoughts so they can mentally better themselves while they are doing something they love.

- The business’ in Gungahlin would thrive as the skatepark lights would be on until 10pm and more people would go use the shops for dinner, maybe even an energy drink and go ride that late night session that every rider loves to do in Canberra.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call upon the Government to refurbish Gungahlin Skate Park and install lights.
