How To Get A Skatepark In City Heights

Thank you Maureen for revisiting this great topic. Kudos to Nick Ferracone for being our spokesperson for the Mid-City Skatepark Advocacy Group. The Mid-City CAN Youth Council is thrilled to be working alongside great partners like Nick in these prime examples of youth-adult partnerships.

City Heights Looks For A Place To Skate

Hi Nick,

Just got a chance to listen to the audio interview piece. What Mr. Reese refers to is the 5 current skateparks that are owned and operated by the City of San Diego. Carmel Valley, Rancho Penasquitos, Memorial, Ocean Beach (Robb Field), and Paradise Hills. What Mr. Reese is referring to is the OVERALL costs of those 5 parks combined. But again, $3.5 million to $5.5 million is such a huge gap, $2.0 million dollars. That a break-down of $700,000.00 on the lower-end to $1,100,000.00 on the high end for a skatepark here in San Diego.

Great job with the article piece Tom. Keep up the great work!

Best,

Mark
