A skate park for South Walton?

"I feel like it would be used daily by at least 50 people a day, depending on whether it is little or big, especially since the 30A board shop is open and kids are purchasing boards," he said.

While Barton, 30, doesn’t do the skateboard thing any more, he does still enjoy riding his BMX at a skateboard park.

He used to drive with friends to Fort Walton to use its park, but that one closed. Since the closure, they have been driving to Tallahassee to use their skate park once or twice a month. If a skate park is built in South Walton he said he would use it two or three times a week.

"Like I said, I'm a little older, but I certainly hope we can get one built...,” he said. “It depends on what the community wants."
