Just got off the phone, the city is just waiting on signs for the Longwood skatepark, that is pretty much it. They can’t open till there are signs, so they might make some temporary signs to get open sooner. We will have waivers for under 17 years olds at the shop this week for everyone to sign. The bad news is that the park will not have lights for a little while. They are working on that right  now. Good news it should be under two weeks to get it open. There you go, good news….right?

Thanks to everyone who attended the Unsponsored skate jam this  past Saturday. Amazing turn out and the weather was perfect as well, unless your scared of the cold. We are going to be doing this soon at the Longwood skatepark, so sit tight. They have thrown us a date of December 17th as the Grand opening. But it should be open by the end of the month. We will have more updates as they are assembling the ramps.

After this long its all happening. Tomorrow they are pouring cement at  6am. So once that is done its up to the company to assemble the ramps and were good to go. There is going to be an official opening the first weekend in December, but they know it will be ready to session way before that. So now you know. Check out the pics below. I will update the progress as it happens. -Chad D

After Monday’s meeting the city has approved the Two purchase orders for construction and installation of the SkatePark in Candyland park behind the baseball fields. The area is going to be partially shaded by two huge trees and they are adding lights to the existing baseball field lights so it will be open till 10pm. The Commissioners and the Mayor were real excited about this skatepark project and have high hopes we all will keep it clean and safe. There will be a liability waiver for 17 and under to get signed by a parent or legal guardian. As soon as we get those papers were going to let you fill them out in the shop so its less hassle turning them in. We are going to provide a Notary as well.

Thanks to everyone who supported or attended the meetings, were on our way. Stay tuned for more updates as we get them from the city. Here is the directions to Candyland park 1050 N Grant St, Longwood, FL. -Chad DeGroot
