With the old North Coast Harbor skatepark removed for good, the City of Cleveland has begun the process of relocating the main skatepark to the banks of the Cuyahoga along the Columbus Road Peninsula in the Flats. This skatepark represents the first step in a greater initiative to bring people-powered recreation to the Flats.
From our roots in the Lakewood Skaters Association, this is the first skatepark we worked on. It is a small park that was talked about for 15 years before the city of Lakewood finally committed to doing it. It also represents the first true legal skatespot in Northeast Ohio. Phase one construction is complete and we are raising money for phase two.Visit Website
East Meets West in Slavic Village
Historic Slavic Village has been home to the annual East Meets West skateboarding event since 2008. The neighborhood has a growing skateboard scene and is central to the region. Broadway Ave is an ideal location for a neighborhood skatepark that would provide the entire region with a new node on the local skatepark circuit.
The east Cleveland neighbnorhood of Slavic Village has hosted many skateboarding events and seen skateboarding grow thanks to the efforts of the staff at Stella Walsh rec center and the Slavic Village Development organization. Plans for a regional skatepark on Union and Broadway Ave have begun with a conceptual design established thanks to many community meetings and input from skaters and businesses in the area.
Zone Rec Skate Path
With a $2 million reinvestment in west Cleveland's Michael J Zone Rec Center, the community also requested something for skateboarding in addition to new ballfields, basketball courts, playgrounds, spray park and pavilion. McKnight & Associates landscape architecture firm approached PSG to help refine a small "skate path" area.
