Creating a Flat Space for Roller Skaters.
We at WatchMyWheels have been roller skating in the area for 2
years and created a vast roller skate community in the area with
limited places to skate that are safe, roller skaters are often
forced to skate in car parks where the freedom is still limited as
the stores do not allow the skaters to skate peacefully. Last year
we had to skate in the basketball courts in Montrose Playing field
whilst dodging the people playing on the courts we also had to
invade the tennis court which disturbed the people playing tennis.
As there is a lot of kids that skate with us in Montrose Playing
Field, The basketball area is not safe for them the risk and
safeguarding levels are low as the kids can easily be hit by balls
and knocked off balance and be injured. We would like to teach kids
and adults how to skate in the area freely with no danger from the
innocent public. As the roller skater numbers start to grow in the
area throughout the year the Montrose basketball court will not be
big enough for us to skate in during the summer as last year proved
that as skaters from all around north west london and out of
borough found out about the new fresh paving in the park. This area
would be looked after by the WatchMyWheels team and local
skaters, last year we had weekly clean ups at the park on the basketball court to prevent any skaters falling on glass or other sharp objects we are dedicated to creating a space for skaters that is safe.
Here are clips of the skate community in the area, enjoying the tennis court when possible.
