We got some pics from the restricted Veterans Skatepark a.k.a. Northport Park (Huntington, NY). The park is enclosed by the same fence type as Pier 62 and also has the same turnstiles (bikers are prohibited). The park hasn’t officially opened yet, but it’s already causing controversy since it’s not going to be free: using the park will cost $50/year pass + entry fee. Our friends over at KuatoLives2084 have been keeping up with the situation if you want more info.
If you feel that charging for this skatepark (town residents & non-residents) is wrong, please email your opinion to the following officials: dmckay@town.huntington.ny.us, pbosch@town.huntington.ny.us, fpetrone@town.huntington.ny.us, mcuthbertson@town.huntington.ny.us, sberland@town.huntington.ny.us, gjackson@town.huntington.ny.us, and mmayoka@town.huntington.ny.us. We haven’t seen an official announcement regarding the pricing so maybe the town of Huntington will listen to the public and allow the less fortunate kids to skate such a beautiful skatepark!
