Queens will be home to a new skatepark this year in the Ozone park neighborhood. Tom Lipani snapped a quick photo of the building process during one of the many snowy days we’ve had this winter. The Queens Courier posted details on the newly built park over the summer saying, “It will be part of planned renovations to London Planetree Playground, officials said. The park will be bordered by Atlantic and 95th Avenues, and 88th and 89th Streets. The skate park will include sets of two-, three- and five-step stairs, grind rails, hubba ledges, a stamped brick quarter pipe and a series of banks and slopes, according to the Parks Department. When completed, this will be the sixth city-run skate park in Queens” – Terence M. Cullen, Queens Courier. Though the skatepark does look near completion already, it’s rumored to open during the fall season of 2013. Check out the plans for the completed park below. You can also read more about the park at ShutUpandSkate.

Flushing Meadows Skate Plaza Update

June 4, 2010

Looks like the Flushing Meadows skate plaza is almost completed. As previously stated the park features obstacles recreating well known street spots around NYC. After this weekend the plaza is said to be open to all sports. New York 1 did a short piece on the plaza earlier today making the claim that, “There are 13 skate parks in the city for the estimated one-million skaters. Two other parks are under construction.” So looks like we should be expecting two more skate parks/plazas done in the near future. See the NY1 story here.
