Not sure how many other people know about this, but I just spoke to someone in the LA City Recreation & Parks office and they advised me that construction will soon begin on a NEW Venice Skatepark. From what I understand, this will be close to the current skate park.
I am awaiting a return phone call from someone in Planning & Construction to get more information. I will pass along as I receive it.
I have only lived here 1.5 years and this could have been in the plans for a while. Since I read the Beachead, VNC news, etc….I was pleasantly surprised to here about this development. I think this is great given the history of Venice and its skateboarding roots.
Can anyone else provide more information than what I posted above? If so, please share.
