My sources are telling me that a new skatepark could possibly happen. It won’t be boardwalk level, but on the street- similar to how Magnolia Park is situated. The exact street location of this skatepark is still unclear.
As a resident, I would absolutely love this. A skatepark would be another form of entertainment, plus a place for us residents, especially those who are younger, to hang out and have some fun (Long Beach is recreation, after all).
As a Taxpayer, I would absolutely love this. A skatepark off the boardwalk could open up so many new opportunities for the city to raise money; whether through events or clinics. We are already a surf destination; Long Beach as a skate destination is completely possible and a skatepark off the boardwalk would almost guarantee it (who wants to open a skateboard shop with me?).
Let’s face it, a skatepark and a boardwalk go hand-in -hand. I’ll post more info as soon as I get it.
