Petition to Have Floodlights at Lucan Skate Park Turned On

Lucan Skate Park
Lucan Skate Park opened around ten years ago and in the last two the floodlights are no longer switched on at night. The facility which is located beside Lucan Leisure Centre in Griffeen Valley Park. The group of skateborders and other athletes use the facility throughout the year including the Winter months, however as the floodlights are off in the evenings it is impossible for skaters to use the facility after school or work. The lights fuel skateboarding progression but also assist in eradicating anti-social behaviour at the amenity. The skate park is one of the few outdoor spaces for youths in the area to improve their skating and make friends. To help and support the cause, you can log on and sign the petition at
