Dallas Skatepark & Garland Skatepark UPDATE (An Interview with Skate Parks For Dallas)
A while back I interviewed an organization called Skate Parks for Dallas. This was right around the time that the City of Dallas was voting on whether or not they were going to fund our first real, public skatepark in the city of Dallas, (sorry, St. Francis, I said “real”). Their goal was to make sure this dream came to fruition…and it did.
Shortly after I published that article, the proposition was passed. A year and a half later and here we are: the money has been allocated, but I haven’t heard much more about it. For an update, I sat down with Skate Parks for Dallas owner, Clinton Haley.
It's been a little over a year and a half since we did our first article on you guys in November 2017. What have you guys been up to since?
Last we talked, Dallas was voting on a prop to allocate money toward a public park. What progress has been made on that since 2017?
After revisiting the Skateparks for Dallas website multiple times since we last spoke, I noticed you guys have focused on other parks being built in the Dallas area as well. Can you tell us a little bit about the other projects going on?
Lastly, what are your future plans for “Skate Parks for Dallas” as a website and as the individuals running it?
Huge thank you to Clinton Haley and Nick DiCarlo from Skate Parks for Dallas for giving me an update on the skateparks all of us locals have been dreaming of. I’ve dropped links below to their website and social. Be sure to support these guys and stay tuned for more info on these park build outs!
