To make the story short, they dislike skateboarders in SCAPE because we are a nuisance to them for creating noise, vandalism and etc.

They prefer earning the money from the youths.-" Will be leased to youth entrepreneurs at $14 to $15 per sqft."

So whats the point building a place for the YOUTH which in the 1st place it's meant for the so called "YOUNG entrepreneurs"?

a pile of cow dung

No wonder no one visits the place. Not enough free activities and they taking away places we want and need like this sheltered skate space. Thank you Singapore!!

Though I've never skated at scape before i think it was a good place for kids to skate and hangout under the shelter.I miss the old skatepark where scape is now but we skateboarders will adopt to any situation and we all know that street skating is still the way to go.minus the harassment from police,security guards and kaypo public.

more retail space is the last thing scape needs.

how about more programs that support youth and sports.

in fact the outdoor playspace was initially just meant for basketball courts..

that space under the shelter is the ONLY place can skate during raining.

scape is a joke! it's not meant to be a mall! we dont need more shops..

stand up and fight! petition against this please!

If you close down the space for us to skate at scape, where are we suppose to skate? Somerset skatepark?
Many skater skate at scape because the flooring over there is much more better then the flooring at somerset skatepark. The floor of somerset skatepark is rough.. And the rail at the somerset skatepark is loss and the surface of the rail have some bands. It not smooth for us to grind the rail

i agree -i skate at scape instead of somerset park cause its much safer as the ground is smoother. i can also get a drink from cheers and go to the skate shop or have a meal at mcD.

its good we have two spots- somerset and scape. and there were always different crowds at each spot. im sad to see when it rains both spots will be unskatable and i will have to stay at home.

I Prefer Somerset Skatepark though when it Rains scape is the only choice we have, i bet SINGAPORE Has the WORST SKATEPARKS EVER BUILT!!! even the poorest countries have not too bad floorings but creative obstacles! do something Tony Tan or whoever
