City Seask8 Finally Gets a New Home
posted by July 17 at 18:18 PMon
Tomorrow, the City Council’s parks committee will (hopefully) approve a new site for SeaSk8 skatepark, which was previously located just east of Seattle Center.
If everything goes according to plan, SeaSk8’s new home will be…right next to the Vera Project!
Despite the long wait, Ryan Barth —chair of the Skate Park Advisory Committee— is happy the park’s finally going in. “We’re very excited to have Vera as a neighbor. We’re hoping we can actively program the space.”
Unfortunately, Barth says, the new 6600 square-foot SeaSk8 won’t be quite as big as the old 8900 square-foot SeaSk8. “It’ll be a very well used site because of its location at Seattle Center,” Barth says, but we’re worried it’s going to be crowded all the time.”
I’ll update tomorrow when the the parks committee signs off on the location.
