Show Notes

What do you do with a future city park site that currently sits kind of as an empty parking lot? Enloe student Adrian Mangano had an idea: why not make it a skate park?

And that idea became Skate Raleigh, a venture to build a temporary skate park between Capital Boulevard and West Street on the future site of Smoky Hollow Park. The area has long been a hang out for skaters, in part because of the Endless Grind skate shop that's operated nearby on Peace Street since 1986.

Adrian tells us how the idea came about, how it became a reality, who some of the supporters are and more.
