New Venice Skatepark

venice skateparkVenice Beach will be home to a new 16,000 square foot skatepark. The skatepark is said to be totaled at over $2 million dollars. Judging by the looks of the layout, the skatepark looks amazing to say the least.

There are so many rad obstacles within the skatepark and at least half of it looks super street orientated. On a side note though, judging by the press release I read they don’t fully explain in detail which existing area they will be removing. I really hope they don’t decide to do away with the existing skate plaza they got there. If they don’t remove it, Venice Beach will be thee “spot” to skate. This skatepark will just add to the wonderful obstacles they got going on out there to skate.

You can basically go out there and spend all day filming amongst the street spots. From the double gaps to the infamous Ledges and many pads that lie stretched across the boardwalk. And if you are really gutsy you can stroll on down to the nearby Santa Monica triple set. You can basically film a full video part in one area. And with the addition of an amazing skatepark in the works, I guarantee you I will be one of the hundreds of thousands heading out there to skateboard until my hearts content.

The Venice skatepark is expected to go under construction sometime between September and October and to be finished in a ten month span. This basically means that it will be done in a little over a year. I can’t wait to skate it.
