What an inspired event! All the people involved with the skatepark really seem to care about the kids in PV.

While I'm not a resident of PV, I am a frequent visitor and I think that this skatepark project is a great idea. Teenagers need a place to be safe and have fun and this looks just perfect. Remember, happy teens turn into happy adults, so why not start with innovative ways to get teens active? Get this done, PV!

What a great event! The exhibits, music, food, attendees and animated conversation brought a lively and purposeful dynamic to a PV Saturday evening. And hopefully brought us one step closer to making the PV Skatepark a reality. As often noted, it's about time . . . .

It was a great and fabulous event. The art is fantastic and the great number of people that came to show support was a positive testimonial for a skatepark in PV.
