Skatepark In Belmont

(Lower Tennis Courts at Davis Park) 

Last night, well, late last night, we were sitting on The Front Porch, and some of kid’s friends were talking about the Belmont Skatepark that was discussed more than a couple of years ago. Yes, in the 77 degree, 11:30 PM nighttime heat.

Anyway, the teens were asking about what happened. We explained to them that the city council had approved a bond referendum to designate funds for the skatepark construction. One young man, said, “in my lifetime?”, “yes” was the response. The original location was supposed to be the lower tennis courts at Davis Park, who knows now what the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee will do…

$115,000 of the proposed $12 million dollar Parks and Recreation Bond package will be directed to this project. Not in time for one of the best skaters in Belmont though, Phillip Nguyen.

The space is a great place to put a park such as this. We hope that it will be dedicated to Phillip.

    cant build a skatepark if not dedicated to the best. it really has been long overdue. it seriously has been years and people have been waiting on it for a long time and one person in particular wouldnt ever get to witness such a great thing happening if it ever happens that is. i know for a fact that phillip would have skated that park everyday if this town had one. i hope with all my heart that it is dedicated to phillip simply because he love the idea of this town actually having a skatepark, and that my friends is more than enough. so please begin on this project with phillip in your mind if not your heart.
