On Saturday, September 14, the United Way’s Day of Caring community volunteer workday brought a fresh look to Skater’s Point, the City of Santa Barbara’s 14,600 square foot waterfront skate park.
With the help of local paint supplier Dunn Edwards, the City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department chose a new paint color for the skate park’s interior and exterior walls. The neutral gray-beige will keep the skate park looking fresh for longer, hiding scuffs and other wear and tear. Dunn Edwards donated the paint needed to give Skater’s Point its new look.
Nearly 40 Day of Caring volunteers joined Parks and Recreation staff for a fun, productive morning painting Skater’s Point. The result was impressive, with skaters returning to that afternoon to enjoy the newly-revitalized skate park.The Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank Dunn Edwards and the team of motivated, community-focused volunteers who joined together, generously donating their time and resources to make this project happen.
Since its opening in 2001, Skater’s Point has become a popular destination for the regional skateboarding community, seeing heavy daily and weekly use by local skaters of all ages.
