Dedication of Cardenas Safe Spot Skate Spot

Panorama City - The City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks in partnership with Professional Skateboarder Rob Dyrdek proudly dedicated Los Angeles' fifth Safe Spot Skate Spot at the Andres & Maria Cardenas Recreation Center in Panorama City on Monday, April 18, 2011.

The newest Skate Spot is approximately 4,500-square-feet and was designed and constructed by California Skateparks. The Cardenas Skate Spot features course obstacles donated from STREET LEAGUE's (DC's Professional Skateboarding tour) 2010 Ontario, CA stop. Central to the plaza is the colored ledge over manual pad, which was slightly modified to make it more skate-able. A flat bank, grinding hand rail and perimeter ledges give the new skate plaza it's unique flow.

The opening of the Andres and Maria Cardenas Safe Spot Skate Spot illustrates both Recreation and Parks' and the Rob Dyrdek Foundation's commitment to provide safe and legal skate plazas for your youth and adults. The Andres & Maria Cardenas Safe Spot Skate Spot is located at 14740 Blythe Street in Panorama City 91402.
