The City of Escondido’s Community Services Department hosted a community Skate Park Rally at Washington Park on Saturday, January 14. The purpose of the event was to generate interest in and gather community input on a proposed skateplaza in the Park.
According to Danielle M Lopez, assistant director of community services, “One of the main goals of the event was to assess the level of support we had, from the community, for a skate plazaproject in Washington Park.
“The turnout and level of support received exceeded our expectations. The city has one skate park located in Kit Carson park. An additional skate plaza at Washington Park would provide a location for thecommunity that may not be able to travel to the other side of town,” said Lopez.
Staff will present the findings and seek direction from the City Council this Wednesday, January 25.
