El Porto is one of three locations being looked at as possible skate park sites.
El Porto, Marine Avenue Park, and Manhattan Heights Park are three locations where the city is considering building a skate park, according to online documents. City staff and skate park designer Kanten Russell will present information about the project in a public community meeting Tuesday, Sept. 8 from from 6-8 p.m. at Joslyn Community Center.
Tonight's meeting is being held to update the community on the August 6th skate park meeting during which city staff and consultants gathered community input on building a skate park in Manhattan Beach.
Russell will go over the type of skate surfaces and design elements that can be used in a skate park.
Input from Tuesday night's meeting will be used to develop recommendations on the feasibility of developing a site for a skate park. Those recommendations will be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on Monday, Oct. 26 in City Council Chambers.
The August meeting covered topics such as skate park location, size, and designs, and narrowed site selection to three possibilities.
Russell is part of Stantec’s Action Sports Team.
