Resident Retention and Attraction
Enhancing Lincoln’s outdoor fitness infrastructure with a network of skateparks makes the city more attractive to high school and college graduates considering their next moves – and to young families looking for safe, healthy places to raise their children.
Like lakes, zoos, bike trails and ski areas, professionally-designed skateparks are proven tourist attractions. And when used as sites for regional and national competitions, they draw athletes and their families from all across the country – who will patronize local hotels, restaurants and retailers.
Health and Wellness
Skateparks promote community and inclusivity while supporting mental and physical health by giving residents safe and legal outdoor places to meet, create and exercise.
Public skateparks serve people of all ages, abilities, identities, economic backgrounds and rollersports interests.
