“If it wasn’t for these kids, we wouldn’t be here,” said Frank Gonzales, deputy director of Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation at the first of three community workshops for the purposed skate park at Crescenta Valley Park.

The workshop began at 6 p.m. at Rosemont Middle School. Its purpose was for officials of L.A. County Parks and Recreation to hear from the community about the proposed skate park that will be in the grassy area above the baseball field at CV Park. The park discussions began when a group of teens wanted a place to skate. They contacted L.A. Parks and Rec and the planning began. That was about two years ago and the project is now moving toward design. The community workshops are a way for local residents, adults and kids, to give their input on the project.

At last night’s workshop, about 30 community members were at the middle school.
