Bischofsheim youth demands a skate park

"Similar to the facility in bad neustadt next to the triamare", explains leonhard bott. "In many places there are skateparks, only in bischofsheim not. A facility like this is a social meeting place for young people, and that’s what we’re missing here", he explained the situation to the mayor. He himself likes to ride a BMX bike, but it is not possible to always drive to bad neustadt to use the facility. "It must be possible for us to have such an installation in bischofsheim."

The flow trail for mountain bikers at the neustadt house, which was realized this year through the kreuzberg alliance, encouraged him to make a push towards a skate and BMX facility. "Such a flowtrail is great, we could use it in bischofsheim and now a skate and BMX park would also be great."

In the summer the thoughts became concrete and leonard bott put out signature lists in bischofsheim’s shops, talked to the neighbors and young people on the bus on the way to school in bad neustadt. The response has been very good from the very beginning. "I had not expected that at all." So he began to research more closely what would be necessary to prepare a place accordingly. He got in touch with a specialist company on the internet and found out about the costs of elements such as a halfpipe, ramps and more. Burgermeister udo baumann was enthusiastic about the commitment and the professional preparation.
