The story behind the Skatepark of Tampa is one that is crazy and rich in history, and is one that every skateboarder should hear. The Skatepark of Tampa, has not only done so much for skateboarding in the Tampa Bay area and in Florida, it has been an important part in progressing skateboarding all over the world.
