New Skate Park Opens on Venice Beach This Saturday

IMG_1524For some reason, publicity on this is skimpy, but The Argonaut, the Venice Surf and Skate Association, and City Council Member Bill Rosendahl’s website are reporting that Venice Beach’s long-awaited skate park will have its grand opening this Saturday, October 3.  The park was built by skate park masters Wormhoudt Inc.

Skater boyz and girlz have lobbied for and have reportedly been waiting for at least 10 years for this park, and it promises to be an exciting addition to the neighborhood.  Given that Venice and the nearby area is often considered the birthplace and mecca of skateboarding, it’s about time they got it.

  1. Wow, Santa Barbara had a skate park before Venice?? Crazy. Used to watch them when I lived in SB – very fun. Glad Venice finally got theirs!

  2. Was a great grand opening celebration and for as little publicity the event received the place was packed. The deep pool (9 feet) is very cool and has me itching to get my skills improved and drop in.
