Have an idea for a Skatepark?

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010


It will be 2011 at least before we see another parks levy on the ballot. Subject to passage of the levy at that point we may see additional building considered. Meanwhile, we can organize and fundraise at a grassroots level and there is no reason not to think about what to build. Send us your ideas and we’ll post them for discussion. Consult the 19 skatepark page to see what size park is proposed for the site you are interested in. If you hold your pointer over a picture of the park, text will pop up with the proposed skatespot size.

People have started to express interest in various sites of Portland’s proposed 19 skatepark network. In particular, neighbors have started to advocate for the Woodstock, Kenton and Fernhill sites. See a concept from Tyler for the Lents Park site after the turn. Constructive criticism encouraged.

lents park plan

Lents Park is bounded by SE Steele and SE Holgate, SE 88th and SE 92nd. The skatepark master plan has it at 5000 sq. ft. Take the time to check this out and comment. There is nothing designed yet skate-wise but there is some opposition to a skatespot in this park so there should be equal or more positive comments. View the three concepts proposed for the Lents Park Master Plan and submit your comments by Wednesday, September 15, 5:00 PM. Comment Opportunity

Thanks Brian for the heads up.
