Southern California’s Channel Street Skatepark located in San Pedro has been closed for over a year now due to a Cal Trans construction project on the 110 Freeway that crosses above park. In the months that have passed, the Park and Ride area and the DIY skatepark has been shut down and everyone honored and respected this temporary ordinance. At that time, Cal Trans assured the skaters that they would have their skatepark back upon completion of the highway project. Unfortunately, the San Pedro Skatepark Association has recently received a notice stating that they have to pay for numerous permits, liability insurance, and possibly rental costs for the property in order to be able to reopen their skatepark. Sketchy government bureaucracy indeed.
Please visit the Channel Street Skatepark GoFundMe page and pledge your contribution towards keeping this skate zone open and free for today’s skaters and the generations to come.
