SKATEPARK UPDATE:

Starting Monday, September 13th and running through Friday, September 17th, the Portland Playgrounds Crew will be performing some incredibly important and time sensitive maintenance work, which will require the skate park to be closed. Two major elements are being addressed:


- Concrete seam resealing: Every seam throughout the park needs to be resealed to prevent water from entering and compromising the surface by freezing and eventually cracking the concrete. 

- Concrete chip repair: There are a few spots where the concrete has chipped away causing a safety hazard and weakness in the surfacing for future cracks.
 
This work is done every few years as inspections inform. The major reason for surface deterioration is repetitive graffiti removal that is performed on the park on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. High pressure power washers are what it required to remove these tags. 
During this time we ask that all users and visitors stay out of the work zone while the repairs cure and harden so that the park is protected for winter and can last us well into the future. 
Thank you!
