WHY/HOW: Molina said, The Belvedere Skate Park is a dream come true for local youth who lobbied County officials after a young skater was struck by a car while skateboarding on the streets of East LA. The youths also participated in the County Department of Parks and Recreation’s skate park design workshops, and skate park construction broke ground in February 2006.
The concrete in-ground skate park facility will include sport lighting, tubular fencing, picnic area, spectator bleachers, landscaping and refurbished restroom building.
