Skateboarders in and around Lake Elsinore will now have another public facility to ride in.

Lake Elsinore currently has a public skatepark at McVicker Canyon Park, and now the city is opening a second one this year in Serenity Park located at 19685 Palomar Road.

According to a sign posted at Serenity, the skate "zone" will feature banks, spines, ledges and stairs.

City documents show that $150,000 has been earmarked in Lake Elsinore's budget for the project.

I think this is great … I grew up in the 90s skating around Orange County trying to find places to skate and when we would find a place property owners would put gravel down to catch our wheels … We eventually obtained permission from the Newport Police Dept. to allow us to skate at the old Ford Factory which is now homes … So skate on kids and be safe …

Good, more stuff for the kids. I am all for it. I use to skate when I was younger... You want to keep your kids out of trouble, this is a start.. It will tell you were your kids are at. If you want horror stories of what you can do as a kid ask me, I was one once.

This is great! Now we will have TWO official skateboard parks and the youth will not have to skate down our drainage ditches, down the streets, or around other areas where it is a danger to them! This fits in with the "Dream Extreme" theme at the youth level. Not only will it benefit LE residents, but will impact Wildomar youth and youth in the unincorporated area of the county> It is all about the kids!
