SF is turning its back on another approved skatepark. Sign this petition online to show your support for the construction of a new park in the Haight.

Posted: July 21, 2010

The city of San Francisco needs more skateparks. Mayor Gavin Newsom's Skateboard Task Force found that San Francisco has over 20,000 skateboarders in 2001. Since then San Francisco has built one skatepark on the south-east side of San Francisco's Potrero Hill neighborhood.

The San Francisco Skateboard Association and the community has searched for years on where a skatepark could be built in the Haight Ashbury.

Stanyan and Waller is sought to be a perfect location for a skatepark due to its visibility, its location adjacent to the police station, its location within Golden Gate Park for recreation, and the opportunity to revitalize the entrance to Golden Gate Park in the Haight Ashbury.

The plan calls for a multi-use area along Stanyan and Waller in Golden Gate Park for a farmers markets and other community oriented activities. The back portion of the site closest to Lincoln Highway would be a skatepark.

Louie Barletta scrapes some vert and Ben Raemers goes past the plane welcoming you to the December issue. The Oververt madness only escalates with a 26-page Enjoi video feature inside, including a Barletta interview, fun facts, new team-rider introductions and even a drinking game. Chug-a-lug. And that's just the tip of the blade: Bastien Salabanzi interviews Manny Santiago; LRG plunges into Cyprus; Hellride travels across the pond; and the Huf team explores Asia. And if the heavy hits leave you looking for some levity, Garrett Hill discusses his infamous two-tone pants and Beagle tells some tales of the Skate Tank. Done deal, dudes.
Add this one to your collection.
