WHY is there a proposed Skate Park being considered for Danville when there is already a Skate Park right next door in San Ramon??? Skate parks bring graffiti, crime and are an eyesore bringing down the neighborhood.

They completely RUINED the skatepark when they attempted to update it, shame on San Ramon for letting the old park become a distant memory and turning it into a lackluster scooter park. So much talent came from the original park, they need to rip this one out and start from scratch! Absurd!

Skatepark? It's not a skatepark anymore. It's a scooter park now. This park sucks.

Why can't teens do something WORTHWHILE like stay indoors and stage houses, thus bringing UP the neighborhood? Why does our town need to provide them with recreational opportunities when MY FRIENDS AND I are going to have to look at them?!?
