Save Steel Lake skatepark | Letters

Letter to the editor

Please save Steel Lake skatepark. It literally saved my kid’s life!

We moved here and knew no one until we went to Steel Lake skatepark. Met several nice kids and even skate shop owners that welcomed us to the community. The kids need a place to go and exercise and meet others. While some of the kids skated, others ran the soccer field and some played soccer. Always inviting others to join.

It’s a great way to get kids out of the house and off their gaming systems. We need to support our youth now more than ever. Please don’t leave our children without recreational outlets. The skatepark is an important part of kids lives while growing up in this world. Thank you from a Federal Way resident for over a decade.
