Checking Out Venice's New Skateboard Park

New, 30 comments

Referenced earlier today in linkage, this is the 16,000-square-foot skate park planned for Venice Beach. Rejoice, cute skater punks. According to the Argonaut, the project will be located close to the Public Art Walls and near the "existing skate dance area near Windward Avenue and Ocean Front Walk." Paid for by Quimby funds (fees paid by developers), it breaks ground this fall. "Skateboard enthusiasts note that the project is particularly fitting because it will bring a standout skate park to one of the birthplaces of the sport. The Venice and Santa Monica area is widely credited as the place where modern skateboarding originated."
