SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Oskar Lindstrom, Dana Point
My name is Oskar Lindstrom and I have loved to skateboard since I was 5 years old.
Dana Point needs a skatepark because it would keep kids off the streets and provide a great place for exercise. I have skated around Dana Point and gotten in trouble several times. If we had a skatepark then this would not happen.
