Westchester to Break Ground on New Skate Park With The Help of Councilman Bill Rosendahl
A skater gets air, but not over Westchester. Not yet.
The city of L.A. continues to roll out skate parks, despite recent opposition from neighbors concerned about noise from skateboarders at a West L.A. rec center.
The latest one will see a ceremonial groundbreaking Monday at 11 a.m. at 7000 West Manchester Ave. in Westchester. Local city Councilman Bill Rosendahl, Annenberg Foundation trustee Charles Annenberg Weingarten and skate pros Steve Berra and Eric Koston are all scheduled to be there.
According to a statement:
Motivated by overwhelming research that documents the benefits to both individuals and communities from the installation and integration of a skatepark, explore.org is teaming up with the world's most popular skateboarding website, theberrics.com to bring this dream to fruition.
According to Rosendahl's office, Westchester Park will also see other improvements, including a "universal playground" that will be friendlier to the physically challenged, and parking and tennis court lighting improvements.
