Why are there skateparks everywhere?

Looking at small towns all over the United States, skate parks can be seen everywhere.

The reason for this is kids that want to skate have damaged benches, destroyed planters, and left marks over all kinds of city structures. Without an outlet for them, they create undesirable effects.

It’s cheaper to build them a park where they can develop their skills, learn something about life, and avoid damaging the beautiful city walls.

If only people would see the value in helping others the way we are helping these kids. Why does something have to be obnoxiously destructive before we see the value in creating something to help?
