Looks like Staten Island is set to have a new concrete skate park take the place of the recently torn down Ben Soto Skate Park. Paula from Open Road sent over some info about the new park and it’s design:
The park is now fully funded (1mil from Boro Pres) with Parks approval and construction will begin this fall. Pro skater Kanten Russell (designer of Tribeca, Maloof, etc) of ASD Action Sports Development is the designer. It’ll be Staten Island’s first concrete skate park. We’re doing public design sessions every Wed 10am to 6pm from 7/20/2011 through first week of Aug. Open to all, skaters, bikers, BMXers. – Paula (Open Road)
