SKATEBOARDING IS THE SECOND FASTEST GROWING SPORT AND MORE POPULAR, AMONG YOUTH AGES SIX TO SEVENTEEN, THAN BASEBALL!
It is estimated there are 4,000 skateboarders in Ocala and 22,000 in Marion County - generally 6.8% of the population, using national averages. These statistics demonstrate a cultural shift in recreational pursuits.
WE NEED YOU!
We need the help of the entire community to make the skate park a reality. Total project costs will be close to $650,000. We need cash donations, in-kind material and service donations. We also need visionaries and people who want to make a difference in the lives of Ocala’s youth and young adults.
