.Caltrans Demolishes Bordertown Skate Park

Yesterday was a somber day for the skateboarding community: Three months after Caltrans tore down The Spot, a popular skate park built on state-owned property in West Oakland in 2009, the agency made good on its promise to demolish the nearby Bordertown skate park near the Oakland-Emeryville border. Both parks have sparked fierce debate over the rights of skaters to appropriate the otherwise underutilized spaces for recreational purposes, with Caltrans citing liability concerns and park supporters countering that the parks were a positive addition to an otherwise desolate area.
