Finally, Sadly, The HB Park Comes to an End.

Image Description Here
I arrived for my usual evening session around 5:30/6, and was shocked when I drove up to see a big green fence cloaking my beloved park. Just yesterday we were thinking about old times here with a concerned Chad TimTim, and it was hard to believe that this might happen.

We have been talking about it for months now...

There were about 2 weeks of 'Last Day' style sessions. Each evening around 6 everyone would go for broke like we would never shred this place again, like the next time we came it would be a pile of dirt, but then we would come back and do it again.

But this time was real. There were people skating when I showed up, so I was for sure going to get my last moves in...

I shot a few photos of the fence...

And checked out the posted Notice to HB Skaters.

Right when I was rolling up to the gap in the fence the Fuzz arrived...

They kicked out all the kids skating!

Cleared the whole park!

Made sure every last person was out.

When they left I sneaked back in to get my last moves. I may go over today and check it out too, but the Fallen Video premieres tonight!

Are they going to build a new concrete park? Or will Pay N Play suffice as a replacement?

They are tearing down Pay N Play to build a new one! Seriously!

I am glad to have been able to skate that park so many times back when I still skated. It was such a basic park, yet so fun. The last time I skated there was probably... 2002.

It will be missed.

Ryan,

Since you live in Canada it will tke longer.

Posted By: ed on August 8th, 2008 at 12:12AM PST
makes sense ed, sorry for the bothering. i'm just way too stoked to see that thing arrive at my door. thanks so much by the way, this occasion might call for some more toy ink.

ps again, do you remember a dude by the name of tom rowe? that guy piled at my house for half a year, my cat pissed all over his stinky stuff. bastard wouldn't even share as much as a sticker for rent.
