“Trinity Skate Park will serve as a place where families and youth will be able to come together and enjoy what their community has to offer— in their own backyard!” said Councilman Curren Price.

A new skate park has opened at the Trinity Recreation Center.

Los Angeles City Councilman Curren Price and the Department of Recreation and Parks hosted South-Central community members Saturday with food, music and prizes to celebrate the opening.

“One of my office’s top priorities is to continue to invest in our local parks, which bring much joy to families and help keep communities fit and healthy,” said Price said. “Since coming into office, we have now successfully opened our second skate park in District Nine. Trinity Skate Park will serve as a place where families and youth will be able to come together and enjoy what their community has to offer in their own backyard.”

The 3,000-square-foot skate park has ramps and rails to include all levels of skaters, and the park has underwent general improvements such as benches, security lighting, new turf, landscape upgrades, a sustainable irrigation system, hydration station and more than a dozen trees to provide shade.

“This facility serves as an anchor and gathering place for the community, and this skate park gives youth a place to meet with people who have the same interest,” said Mike Shull, general manager for the Department of Recreation and Parks. “We hope that this amenity allows athletes to grow in the sport and begin anticipating the arrival of the 2028 Olympic games coming to L.A.”
