Finally after so many years of wanting a skate park in Saint Petersburg, it finally happend. (http://copingblock.blogspot.com/2010/08/ghosts-of-skate-spots-past.html
Big thanks to the Skate Park Alliance! All those that kept the fire lit after the failed Walter Fuller Skate Park proposal did not go through as planned. That hurt pretty bad as I was on the committee that worked hard to get the Walter Fuller Skate Park approved by the City of Saint Petersburg. When that effort was unrealized, I backed off and concentrated on Coping Block Skateboarding Magazine. As it turned out, Dan Brown, Nick Nicks, and Jay Turner picked up the pieces a few years later and we ended up getting one of the best skate parks in the southeast United States! Yeah!
