VICTORIA PARK – STILL THERE?

So apparently the park was just fenced off and closed down for a few days so they could cut down the big Oak Tree’s.. its open again and rideable. But if the LTNZ stand by their word it will be gone end of this month. But who really knows!?.

Still no finalized word on when we will be getting a replacement park.

I just heard from a very reliable source who works in the Victoria Park area of town that the whole Skate Park has officially been fenced of. There is a bulldozer and digger in the park, and all the big Oak Tree’s we used to chill under have been cut down. I would say it wont be long till the whole park is gone.

BARRY CURTIS SKATEPARK

Here are the proposed plan for a new Skatepark going in Barry Curtis Park in Botany Downs, Auckland. This isn’t the final plan, just a draft, but gives an idea of what the Skate park will look like and the size of it.
