Learn more about how our community can benefit from an all wheels skate park
Physical Health Benefits
Skateparks build and sustain healthy communities, providing the forum for visitors young and old, beginning and skilled, to meet and share experiences. By improving overall fitness and physical endurance, skateboarding improves health for low investment. Specifically, skateboarding improves balance, precision and flexibility. Participants learn to fall safely, improve pain tolerance, and significantly reduce risk of future falling injuries. The physical activity reduces stress, increases metabolism and contributes to healthy weight management.
More Benefits from an All Wheels Skatepark
The majority of children’s injuries happen outside skateparks. The most common injuries are falls due to surface irregularities and collisions with motor vehicles or pedestrians. All wheels activity is going to happen whether parks exist or not. The best way to keep our children safe, is to provide them access to a designated space to pursue their activity.
Mental Health Benefits
Active children have complete creative freedom to do their own thing, at their own pace. After hours of practicing a skill, they learn persistence while reducing fear of failure or pain. They learn to rely upon their own set of skills, and know their limits, improving self-confidence.
Positive Economic Impact
An all wheels skatepark will help create the need for quality shops. It will also help create new teaching opportunities related to lessons and summer camps. This helps bring new jobs to the community. Parents can drop kids at the park while they get their errands run. A public park shows the community is invested in the youth and active lifestyles.
