The Problem

Ventura has three small skate tracks that need upgrading, but skatepark money is not in the City budget until 2018. In the meantime, parents spend money taking their kids to skateparks in other cities, and Ventura has seen a surge of renegade skate spots that are costly liabilities.

The Solution

Ventura's skate tracks can each be expanded by at least 8,000 square feet. The VSIC Master Plan calls for the full makeover of all three tracks beginning at West Park, where we propose the expansion of the existing skate track by end of summer 2017.
