Cardenas Skate Plaza is the latest effort in the Safe Spot Skate Spot program.  Designed and constructed by California Skateparks, the plaza is sized at about 4,500 square feet and includes donated STREET LEAGUE features from the 2010 Ontario stop.  Central to the plaza is the colored ledge over manual pad.  This feature was modified slightly from its original form to make it more skateable for the youth.  Additionally the plaza possesses both a flat bank and grinding hand rail also from the Ontario event.  In an effort to promote design uniformity, perimeter ledges are finished with burnished block to match the existing building and surrounding architecture.  Once again the generous efforts of STREET LEAGUE and California Skateparks have impacted the City of Los Angeles youth.  More project details located here.
