An article published today in the New York Times, ‘Why Cities are Finally Showing Skateboarders Some Respect’ explains how New York and New Jersey are investing in upgraded and improved skate parks. The new Riverside Skate Park, which W designed along with the NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation and California Skateparks, was noted as one of the new skateparks in NYC for skateboarders in a reimagined urban landscape.
The skatepark was designed to have an open plaza for skaters of all levels and abilities and a separate area with an 11 foot tall bowl structure for more advanced skaters. The plaza is already open, as you can read in the article, the skaters are doing a great job sweeping the skate plaza every day! The bowl should open early next year and we can’t wait to share it with the skateboarding community.
