Mike Fox Skatepark - City of Santa Cruz

Major Victory in Oakland!

Skaters were highly successful in negociating the DIY skatepark stay open. Future discussions, no doubt, but WOW. Thanks to everyone who supported this, especially the Politicians who got on skaters bandwagon! (posted 8/5)

Please sign the petition to give LOVE Park back to the skaters — yeah! (click the logo) Thanks!
