Just got this email. To anyone who contributed to the "friends of the Newburyport Skatepark" this should horrify you. I guess BMX guys still haven't figured out that they can ride anywhere and build whatever they want.

"As everyone knows from Ginny's last email, the improvements to the park are up in the air. While I know some people are interested in expanding the park at the Nock I would like to suggest we explore another option. As you may or may not know, I have been working with a group of young people looking at a location to ride their BMX bikes.

I am meeting with the Parks Commission Thursday evening to begin the preliminary support of improvements to Cushing Park. These improvements would be the following: leveling the current hard top area used as a basketball court; dividing that area in two and building 1. An street hockey rink/ basketball court (NYS looks to start a summer street hockey league next year); 2. A skate park for boards and BMX bikes and 3. Any improvements needed at the playground to meet the needs of abutters.

The area would not be huge (@7-8K SQFT) but it would create a second spot in town where skating was allowed (We all know how many soccer fields, basketball courts and playground are available in town). This will not be an easy sell as most changes are not, even when seen by some as improvements.

I would like to ask the Friends to consider putting their support behind this project instead of expanding the existing park. I have also met with the Youth Hockey League and have asked for their support as well towards the rink. I think that a partnership could be very beneficial.

I would love to hear your thoughts, concerns and questions. We are still early in this process and any feedback is helpful. If you want to get involved, we have a group on facebook Cushing Park Improvements or email me.

"some day someone's gonna get killed."
Found this news piece from where I grew up, complete with interview with Art Lew from our only skate shop Samurai Skates.
"new main street and a push to get people downtown." Yeah, cause skateboarders were the problem back then in Rochester, not the daily shootings inside the new fancy mall. Reminds me of how far skateboarding has come, although I kinda liked it when everyone hated us.

"Where there was nothing, I built this, and by my effort it has become mine to oversee as I see fit."

Congratulations to the Newburyport DPW for releasing their lifes' frustrations upon a work of art created by passionate people for the most innocent of uses. Scarehouse wins, you lose.

Forget the parties, forget the guards, $8,000 ADDITION NOW!!!

Dear Friends of Newburyport Skate Park,

It is nearly Spring, and the park will re-open soon! Last season was extremely active for the park, through active use by skaters and through advocacy by the community to support the park's continued funding. We now have $8,000+ in our FNSP account, and so, we need to decide how to use that money (or some of it).

Andi Egmont, Supervisor of Youth Services for the City of Newburyport, and Supervisor to the Skate Guards, has made a request to us for some funding, and has also requested a meeting - though no date has yet been set.

I'm asking those of you that are willing to meet with Andi and I, to discuss the park's needs and opportunities, to let me know who you are. Teens and adults are of course, welcome! Please respond via email, but also give me your name, and phone # if possible.
