Get your name on a brick at the SLO Skate Park
July 17, 2014
The City of San Luis Obispo has started construction on the new SLO Skate Park at Santa Rosa Park and a projected grand opening is scheduled for winter 2015, according to a press release.
Community members and businesses interested in being a part of this project and leaving their mark on the new state-of-the-art SLO Skate Park may purchase personalized bricks of recognition, which will be permanently placed in the outdoor amphitheater area. Bricks may be ordered in person at the Parks and Recreation Department at 1341 Nipomo Street, or online at www.sloskatepark.com.
The 15,500-square-foot concrete park will be an invaluable addition to the city’s multi-use facilities, serving locals and visitors alike. In addition to the skate area, the park will feature an outdoor amphitheater, a low impact fitness path, public art, and a streetscape plaza for spectator seating, farmers’ markets, craft fairs and other events.
The SLO Skate Park project would not be possible in its full capacity without significant funding from Measure Y, the city’s half-cent sales tax. Other funding for the SLO Skate Park comes from Parkland Funds and a notable grant provided by the Tony Hawk Foundation.
