The skatepark needs a new power washer to keep the park clean. Jesse Martinez and the VSA donate their time every day to make sure the park remains clean and skate-able 365 days a year. Help ’em out with a donation if you can.
There’s a benefit show going down tomorrow February 9th at Marginal Way Skatepark to replace some stolen tools and keep the building going. Cruise out an hear music from Colonix, Same-Sex Dictator, Don Peyote and Frustration. Over $2000 worth of prizzy up for grabs! Don’t miss out. Find more info here.
The Fullerton Skate Park at Independence Park has been temporarily closed for potential repairs, to address safety concerns, and for consideration of the future plans of the facility. These items include graffiti removal, potential fencing improvements, and resolution of numerous liability and other insurance issues related to activities at the facility.
You are invited to meet with Parks & Recreation staff to discuss these issues on Thursday, February 2, 4:30pm at the Fullerton Main Library, Osborne Room. We would like to gain your feedback and hear your concerns as we prepare to present some options to the Parks and Recreation Commission on February 13, 2012, 6:30pm, in the City Council Chambers. PLEASE COME!! SUPPORT SKATE PARKS!!!

BURNSIDE SKATEPARK ACQUIRES 501(c)(3) NON-PROFIT STATUS
With the same passion that created the Burnside Skatepark, we strive to maintain and improve the park and its unique reputation, as well as develop and sustain park relations, allowing the park to engage the community and support the efforts of social justice.
Burnside Skatepark, built by skateboarders, for skateboarders, without prior city approval, is arguably the most famous skatepark in the world. The grandfather of the DIY skatepark building movement, the park has inspired countless renegade, skater-built projects, and played a vital role in the rebirth of the modern skatepark.
We are proud to announce that Burnside Skatepark has acquired 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status. All donations to the park are now fully tax-deductible.
Burnside has existed for 21 years through the efforts of innumerable dedicated volunteers and through donations from individuals, organizations, and companies just like you and yours. Please support the on-going maintenance and improvement of this landmark of skateboarding. Along with the addition of new board members, the newly obtained non-profit status and your donations will help carry Burnside into the future.
Donations can be made via paypal on our website, or through postal mail.
Keep skating, keep building,
