What started out as a makeshift park by local skateboarders is now on the fast track to becoming a public skatepark in the New Orleans Gentilly area. The city donated $150,000 in ramps and an additional $60,000 in donations came from the Tulane City Center. Construction at the Parisite Skate Park is set to begin in July and should be finished later this year.
Below are a few pictures of what is currently in place at the skatepark that is located under Interstate 610 at Paris Avenue:
