You could get a group of friends together and go to a city council meeting to petition for them to build a skatepark, raise funds, and if you're lucky it'll take a couple of years...or... since this is a DIY section you could go buy some concrete add some water and make your own spot. I prefer the second option.

Yeah, but the problem with that is that sometimes the petition just doesn't work. I don't know how many times I've tried to fucking petition for a skatepark, gotten 100+ sigs and still heard nothing from the city. We have around 10 or 12 skaters (not including the ones that are multi) and the rest are BMX, scoots or hybrids. Then we get the cops called on us when we ride down a sidewalk the wrong way. DIY'ing things in my town is nearly impossible with the equipment available to us. I've been trying to find a miter saw for about a week.
