Goderich Skate Park Not Moving To Agricultural Park

A member of the Goderich Skateboard Committee says they were a little disappointed they weren’t allowed to re-locate to the Agricultural Park after bullying issues arose at their temporary location at the former Victoria Public School.

Myles Murdock believes the Victoria Public School location is temporary at best. He says they’ll try to resolve the bullying problem by asking the public, parents and some of the older kids to be vigilante. The public is also asked to support them in making sure garbage is picked up, language is appropriate and younger kids be encouraged to enjoy what should be a good experience.

Murdock adds the alternative is the kids return to the streets or the Courthouse Park and any other place where there’s some pavement.

He also contends that in the long term, the Agricultural¬†¬†Park would be the ideal location and the noise issue raised by some of the neighbours wouldn’t have to be a problem.
