Use a survey to help design new features, obstacles, and elements for a new skate spot for beginners at James Kenney Park. Survey closes November 16.
Let us know which skateboarding features – ramps, rails, stairs, ledges, or something else – would be best for beginners at a new West Berkeley skate area.
Even though we’re looking to design this James Kenney Park skate area as a place for grommets and other newbies, drop in your comments even if you’re a pro.
Should it have a quarterpipe or a roll-in? How about a flat rail or a deck? What other features make for a fun skate area – like seating, shade, or choice of materials?
Let us know by completing a short online survey by November 16th.
Improving James Kenney, improving skater life
The beginner-focused James Kenney skate area, which would use an underused area of the park, strengthens a full spectrum of skate experience at Berkeley parks.
The planned skate area, which would maintain existing park features, would also be the latest in a series of improvements since 2017, including a replaced picnic area and playground, renovated community center, upgraded basketball and tennis court surfaces, and new trees.
To get updates on this planning phase and beyond, email the project team with the subject line: “Please add me to the James Kenney Park – Potential Skate Spot Park Improvements email list.”
Share the skate spot survey with your friends and help us create a haven for the next generation of Berkeley skaters.
