Existing skateboard park should be upgraded

Regarding the controversy over ball diamonds versus a skateboard park:

Why can’t we work out something for the skateboarders where they are now?  Spend some reasonable amount of money to upgrade it.  Put in portable toilets for the summer months.  How many people use this park?  Keep our ballfields.  We are not made of money for every idea floated out there.
