What An Awesome First Season
It was an awesome first season at the East Woods Skate Plaza.
The Plaza has been populated from dawn to dusk almost every day by a mix of skateboarders and BMX bikers. It’s not unusual to find many out-of-town visitors on the weekends and holidays.
We couldn’t have asked for better publicity. The Syracuse Post-Standard has featured the Skate Plaza several times, capturing the wide range of ages, skills and choice of equipment of the athletes who frequent the site and love it.
The only complaint we have heard is that the Plaza is too small. The Eastwood Neighborhood Association’s Skate Park Research Committee is ready to address that by starting the discussion on Phase II.
Important Meeting – Should the Plaza expand?
Join us on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 to discuss future plans for the East Woods Skate Plaza.
We want to continue in the same direction as we did with the first phase, getting feedback and opinions from everyone — the athletes that will use the Plaza, the neighbors around the park, parents of the kids… everyone with an interest!
Please help spread the word. Come and enjoy some refreshments, but most importantly, come to share your ideas and hear what others have to share about the future of the East Woods Skate Plaza.
Be a part of this great endeavor for Eastwood and the City of Syracuse.
