New 40,000 Square Foot Skateboard Park Opens in Santa Clarita
A very large skate park is opening this afternoon up in Santa Clarita with professional skaters like Christian Hosoi and Chris Gentry taking some of the first grinds. The park features a capsule riding surface, 10 and 11-foot bowls, grind ledges, a half-pipe, snake run, stairs, skate-able planters, rails and more.
Down at Venice Beach, a new 16,000 square foot one is under construction and a new skate plaza recently opened near Wilshire and Vermont. Also, one is being considered in Echo Park just off the 101 Freeway.
