Last night I went to Orlando skatepark to see nothing in the shop. Long story short, its a city park now. But since they don’t have everything together they can’t charge. So yes, you are reading this right, ITS FREE for now. That means bikes tonight and wednesday and skating the whole time. It could change any day, but I am pretty sure it could be a week or so before everything is straight. So hit it up but make sure you are 18 or have a parent to sign the NEW waiver. Pretty simple.
Vans has announced they will be closing the doors near the 1st of the year as well. This was a quote from a high up employee “The building was bought and the new owners don’t want the kids there”. So if you have a chance hit up one of Orlando’s finer skateparks and put it to rest. This doesn’t mean trash the place, just get your riding in now cause it will be going away. -Chad DeGroot
