How You Can Help

Write a letter


IF YOU ARE A RIDER:

To whom it may concern,

I am a skateboard/BMX/inline/scooter rider from the greater Rochester area and I think the City of Rochester should support the efforts of The Friends Of The Roc City Park. The addition of a large-scale, world-class skatepark would help provide my friends and I with a safe and legal alternative to the streets and draw people from around the globe to spend their money in our city.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,


IF YOU ARE A PARENT

To whom it may concern,

I am a proud parent of a child that participates in a progression-orientated sport. I think the addition of a large public skatepark in downtown Rochester would be a wonderful idea. Skateboarding/BMX/inline skate/scooter riding are healthy and positive activities that all have seen an increase in participation throughout the country. Please consider supporting The Friends Of The Roc City Park with their plans to build a world-class skatepark at Crossroads Park.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,


IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER (within city limits)

To whom it may concern,

As an adult and resident of the city of Rochester, I have seen many youth and adults forced to participate in their sports of choice on private property and the streets of our community due to the absence of a proper public park facility optimally designed for their sports. I think the Friends of The Roc City Park have a great idea and I hope you consider supporting them in their efforts so we can get a place built for these athletes to go.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,


IF YOU ARE A CITIZEN OF THE GREATER ROCHESTER AREA

To whom it may concern,

As a citizen of the greater Rochester area, I support the Friends Of The Roc City Park and their efforts to build a large-scale, world-class skatepark in Downtown Rochester. I believe that healthy outdoor activity would enhance our community as well as help generate money spent within city limits. Please consider supporting our youth and our community in this manner.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,


IF YOU ARE AN OUT-OF-TOWN SUPPORTER AND RIDER

To whom it may concern,

I do not live in Rochester but I do travel a lot in pursuit of places to ride my skateboard/BMX bike/inline skates/scooter. I have been to your town and enjoyed what the streets have to offer, but I feel a world-class skatepark like the one The Friends of The Roc City Park are proposing would be a fantastic addition to your city. I hope you support their efforts. I look forward to visiting this park soon and spending money at your various hotels, stores, and restaurants.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,


IF YOU ARE AN OUT-OF-TOWN SUPPORTER (and not a rider)

To whom it may concern,

I am not a resident of the greater Rochester area, but I do visit friends and family in your community and would love if I had a place like a large-scale, world-class skate park to take my children to when I visit Rochester. The opportunity for them to play and be active while I shop or go out to a meal would be great. Please consider helping the Friends of The Roc City Park implement their ideas to help enhance your downtown and our visiting experience.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

We are currently in the process of becoming a Non For Profit organization. Once we have our 501c3 status all donations will be tax deductible. Once that is in place we will have a Link on our website for easy donations. Or you can attend an event and donate in person. All large donations that require a receipt will have to be pre arranged and done in person.

Volunteering time

We are always looking for people to help set up and participate in events. Spread the word to your neighbors, friends and family about the virtues of a skatepark/urban park. Write letters to city officials (keep them short,polite and to the point.)
