An update from City Staff, regarding the skate park.

Thank you for visiting the City of Santa Clarita’s skate park web site. As you may know, the skate park has been closing at dusk, due to the in-appropriate behavior displayed by some of the park users.  In reviewing current operations, visiting/contacting other skate parks, meeting with the Sheriff’s Department, as well as engaging the skate community and messaging the skate park as a City facility that is a privilege to enjoy, City Staff will be implementing the following changes and additions:

  • Effective February 1, 2016, hours of operation will be 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • A text alert has been created to allow for the City to better communicate with the skate community. Text “SCSKATEPARK” to 888-777
  • Technology improvements will be made; including updated and better positioned cameras.
  • A community survey will be launched early February 2016, to obtain feedback from the community on possible programming opportunities/special events/facility enhancements.
  • A skate instructor has been hired to provide clinics, camps, and lessons, beginning March 2016
  • Park signs are being reviewed and updated, with relevant information and an updated look

 

We appreciate the community’s support of the City staff and the new operations, and look forward to a safe and enjoyable experience for all!

 

SMOKING IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE SKATE PARK.
