A crowd of skateboard enthusiasts, both the young and young-at-heart, were on hand on Saturday, September 29, for the grand opening of the new skate park at Balboa Park. The skate park project, a partnership with the Trust for Public Land, was part of a larger renovation of the park that included the construction of a new playground, resurfaced tennis courts, new picnic areas and improved pathways and landscaping. The $391,000 skate park was funded in part by the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond Community Opportunity Fund, which allows members of the public the opportunity to apply and receive funding for smaller capital projects at their neighborhood park. A special thanks to Supervisor John Avalos and Supervisor Scott Wiener for their continued support of our parks. Next time you're in the area, stop by Balboa Park and "Get out and skate!"
