I would have to agree with Mr. Leggin's letter about the flowers being planted in the middle of Danville's busiest instersection, yet the skatepark is still an issue.
I have a 16-year-old son whom I travel with most weekends to Somerset so he can enjoy skateboarding in a safe environment. Its obvious Danville has a public swimming pool, and in my opinion more children are put in more danger there than they would be at a skatepark.
The Danville City Commision should be aware that these kids (and adults) aren't asking for much. Just a fun, safe, friendly skating environment.
