The port people who are redeveloping the eastern shoreline, called “the Blue Greenway project” have included our idea for a skate park in their plans. We have advocated for this area for some time, maybe four years ago now, and we had wanted three parks, Mission Bay, Warm Water cove and India Basin. all three have been combined to make one big park that will include a bmx park also, when this project comes around for community input we will let you all know. And yes we will advocate for two parks, one for skating and one for bmx. Stay tuned!
we are starting a steering committee for the blue greenway projects. this includes three skateparks, warm water cove, india basin, and third and army. we will hold a meeting in january to discuss and plan for thee upcoming year. if you would like to be a part of this committee , e mail us.
