This coming Saturday May 30th please join in on the FREE Skate A Lot festivities that will be held at the Delridge Youngstown Cultural Center parking lot (4408 Delridge Way SW) at 1pm. See the attached flyer and below for more information.
This event is intended to help raise awareness for the Delridge Skatepark that will be located directly across the street from the Cultural Center. The skatepark has a fully funded design and two meetings have already been held to gain design input from the community. A third design meeting will be forthcoming in the next few months. And the SPAC just learned that the Seattle Parks and Recreation is going to provide $500,000 towards construction and an additional $250,000 will go towards construction from the Parks for All Levy. There are currently no skateparks in south Seattle so the community is attempting to build the largest skatepark possible in the available footprint. Although $750,000 seems like a lot, more money is needed to build the largest possible facility. Therefore, the community is throwing events such as the attached to raise awareness and attempt to obtain additional in kind donations from the community and grants from outside organizations.
