Out with the Jank, in with the Dank
Benchmark Skateparks is breathing some new life into the Hood River skatepark. They’ve taken out some of the jankier wooden elements reaplacing and adding to them with some sweet street-style concrete. The project is almost finished, although they may have been slowed down a bit by the recent rainstorms. I skated there like a week ago – and it was already feeling more connected and flowing.
