Colin and Jesse and others are working to clean up and reclaim a bit of waste land in Southeast Portland as a public skate spot. They have clearance from the city and have met with neighbors, the police and the railroad. Neighbors and other community organizations are impressed. Skaters for Portland Skateparks provided some funding. You can follow the progress of the project at The Brooklyn Street Skate Spot Facebook page.

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.
