The project costs about $4 million with half used to buy the land and the other half for construction which was financed by Prop. 40. This site was originally slated to be a condomonium development which ended up going under which is hard to believe these days with all of the apartment construction taking place in Woodland Hills. The project is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving so should be around the corner now with the summer winding down.
This might be one of the few instances where a piece of land in the SFV is actually used for public purposes and not pillaged by private entities to build the latest McMansion housing tract or apartments occupying the entire perimeter of the property with barely any space for a sidewalk.
I havent skated in like 20+ years so the completion of this project might be a good excuse to get out and re-live my younger days.
