I would like to suggest a skate park in the south of the city, for example there is plenty of room on the large park near Diglis Water. This would provide local youngsters with somewhere to practice their skills and avoid the current situation of them becoming a nuisance to local residents and in the town centre. The recently created Cathedral Square needs enhancing to discourage bike and skateboard activities which currently creates an anti social environment to shoppers and pedestrians. However, with huge cuts in youth provision over recent years, young people do need somewhere to go. From my observation of what interests local youngsters, this would be a welcome addition to the existing playing field, which currently has little to attract teenagers.
