It’s been awhile since we posted the hijacked rendering of the future Bethpage Skate Park. Well some news recently came our way from a reliable source and we wanted to spread the word.
The concept was put together by a landscape architecture firm who had an employee who skated. A reputable skate park design company was hired to review the construction documents and specifications that the LA firm had put together to make sure that they used all of the correct details for skate park construction. The reputuable skate park design company was not allowed to modify the design at all.
It would be unfortunate if Bethpage were to waste close to $1M on a poorly designed/constructed skate park. We emailed the town to see what the facts were and got the following reply: “So that I do not give you the wrong information I am waiting for my supervisor’s answers to all of your questions. I just wanted you to know that I am looking into this and will get back to you as soon as I have the correct answers”. Unfortunately we haven’t heard anything since (9/29/2011). We will keep you posted with any future updates.
