Providence East Skatepark in Brandon, FL is the second of three Team Pain parks that we are getting here on the west-central gulf coast of Florida in the next several months! Looks like it is shaping up quite nicely. Take a look at all the updates on Team Pain’s website, as well as their Facebook page.

Monday, September 12th, the city of Kissimmee, FL is having a Grand Opening Celebration for their new Skatepark at Lakeside Park.
Well, here is the first conceptual design for the Bradenton River Walk Skatepark from the folks over at Hardcore Skateparks Inc. We were all pulling for Team Pain Skateparks to win the bid, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. This is just a CONCEPTUAL rendering, and not the final approved design, but it is a starting point. What would you change or not change about it? Also, keep in mind, that the street section to the left, where you see the two sets of three pilings coming out of the ground, will be covered by the US41 bridge. Make sure to check back often for updates as this whole project moves forward.

17,000 sq. ft. of concrete! That is what the new Bradenton “Riverwalk” Skatepark is getting! Now, the important part…exactly how to use that 17,000 sq. ft. Make sure to stay tuned to the Bradenton Riverwalk Skatepark facebook page for all of the latest updates. Also be sure to share your ideas about the design of the park and who you would like to see build it (Oh, I don’t know, Team Pain for example)! It is very crucial that this park be designed and built properly…there is nothing worse than a poorly designed park built by some random contractor!
A few weeks ago, the Bradenton City Council voted unanimously to approve the final proposal of the Riverwalk Project, which includes a concrete skatepark. Now that the ball is rolling in the right direction with that park, its time to turn the focus on two existing Manatee County skate parks. GT Bray and Blackstone are not proper skate parks. These skate parks are perfect examples of what happens when the city or the county doesn’t consult with the local skateboarders and include them in the design process to build them a park that they actually want to skate. Unfortunately, this kind of “slapping a bunch of pre-fab ramps on an old tennis court or roller-hockey rink” crap happens all the time. What you are left with is a park with no flow and limited options that skaters are easily bored with…a waste of time and money! So, to start, let’s show Manatee County that these two skateparks need to be updated to adequate concrete skateparks. Join the Concrete Skate Parks For GT Bray and Blackstone Facebook page and get involved! Make sure to check the facebook page and No Comply Magazine often for updates as this moves along. Next…Pinellas County skate parks!
Next Wednesday evening, February 23rd @ 6 pm, is the Bradenton City Council’s FINAL APPROVAL meeting regarding the new Bradenton Skate Park. Please come out and show your support for a FREE PUBLIC SKATE PARK! City Council needs to hear your voice! Read the latest on the Riverwalk project here.
