See the previous coverage of the Thomas Greene skatepark here. “The Thomas Greene Playground Skate Spot is a small scale specialty design / build project. The project includes the addition of three skate features including a custom radius and kinked ledges, and a manual pad. Located on an exisiting basketball court, the facility can be utilized by multiple sporting disciplines. This project is a colaboration between CA skateparks, Friends of Douglas / Greene Park, and Open Road of New York as well as having received generous support from the Tony Hawk Foundation and yours truly” – California Skateparks. Thanks to Angelo Ferrer for the info.

The Thomas Greene park on 3rd avenue in Brooklyn, NY is now home to a select amount of skate obstacles that will eventually be converted to a full fledged skatepark according to The Brooklyn Paper website. The Brooklyn Paper states, “…A spokesman for the Parks Department said that the design for the full renovations [of the park] will be completed in July, 2010, and construction will begin in Spring, 2011…Fortunately, a more comprehensive skate park will likely be built when the park gets its full facelift.” So expect to see another skatepark next year but in the meantime you can see more photos of the available obstacles on the Friends of Douglass Greene Park facebook page.
