Respect the skate park

To the Editor

The recently constructed Junction Skateboard Park has become a wonderful facility providing an excellent outdoor activity for kids and youth of the community. We live close by and were able to watch the skill and care that was put into its construction.

We have been very sad to see that some people do not appreciate it.  There are two garbage bins and two recycling bins on location however every morning the grounds around are littered with plastic bottles  empty cups cardboard containers juice boxes wrappers and various bits of garbage.

The absence of washrooms is an oversight as users regularly use the surrounding bushes to relieve themselves in sight of their friends and other spectators.

The skateboard park is a great addition to our town and we hear from visitors that they wish their town had such a park.

Let’s be proud of it and keep it clean.
