Schuylkill River Skatepark: Coming Along

Plans for the Schuylkill River Skatepark - the place where exiles from Love Park are supposed to flock to - have been unveiled; while approval by the Fairmount Park Commission is still required, there’s an expectation that shovels will be in the ground by next Spring. A nonprofit called Franklin's Paine seeks to raise the $5 million needed for construction from the skateboard industry's equipment manufacturers, clothing makers and retail outfits, as well as from Philadelphia corporate interests (see story).
