City Skateparks A-Go-Go
posted by November 8 at 16:45 PMon
The race is on to build Seattle’s first new skatepark:
The River City skatepark (RCS) is going through the motions of their environmental review, and should begin construction in February or March. Construction should, hopefully, only take 3 or 4 months.
Meanwhile, the Lower Woodland skatepark finally broke ground last month—after a long legal battle—and should be up and running by the summer.
With City Council Parks Committee Chair David Della on his way out, maybe Seattle can start to catch up with the 5 skateparks Portland’s built, renovated or begun planning for since they passed their city wide skatepark plan in 2005.
