ORANGE COUNTY FL SKATE SPOT REVEALED!

johnresize2
We are pleased to present to you Orange County Florida’s first Concrete Skate Spot. The John Young Community Park. The county currently only has prefabricated steel Skate parks spread about their system.This Street themed skate spot came about from efforts by the Hunters Creek residents who advocated for a properly designed and built skate spot for their community.This project is planned to be constructed this year and it should kick start the advocacy efforts by the local The Central Florida skate community.

With other advocacy efforts on neighboring cities and county’s currently underway in Casselberry, Longwood and Winter Haven and new found efforts by the City of Orlando to restore the Orlando Skate park, and Larger State wide efforts to remove the waiver clause from the former state statute that covers skateboard and BMX liability; the time is now for the Central Florida Community to get involved in advocacy to help develop a healthy skate park system that is positive and builds on to the quality of life of the Central Florida Community.

We need to show the positive impact a facility like this will have on the community, and as the population of Orange County Grows, we can expect them to keep building more of these facilities!  Location: 12998 Deertrace Avenue, Orlando, FL
