My name is Chase Barkdull and I go to Mohr Elementary school. I like the idea of having that park because I would like to ice skate sometimes,but what you should add is a roller skating rink because I know a lot of people that like to roller skate. The tennis court idea was a good idea. I would like to do that sometime. I really like the idea of the San Jose sharks coming over to the ice skating rink.
