Skatepark Article on the Cover of FRESH Magazine
"I am not sure if there is still a stigma against skateboarding, but the benefits to constructing a skateboard park are huge. It is a park, no different than a provincial park where people travel to camp, canoe, or hike. People who are interested in active recreation, like skateboarding, will travel to other communities that offer what they want. A skateboard park is a tourist attraction, which means business for hotels, restaurants, stores, and other attractions. A park will only have a positive impact on the community where it will give youth something to do and somewhere to go, which will hopefully eliminate the impression among young people that the Sault sucks." - Tara Lappage (Chair of the Sault Youth Council)
