Bordertown Oakland Skatepark Demolished

Bordertown Oakland Skatepark Demolished
Even though skateboarders have spent their own money during the last seven years building a place to skate, Cal Trans decided several months ago that they would destroy it. The skaters had transformed a forlorn place under Interstate 580 known for illicit activities and drug sales into a DIY concrete skate park where skateboarders of all ages could join.
But the park, known as Bordertown for its location on the border of Oakland and Emeryville was bulldozed yesterday.
Caltrans officials have said the park is located on state property and the unauthorized construction will be demolished. "At this point, there's not much that the skaters can do to keep it from being torn down," Caltrans spokesman Bob Haus said. Blah Blah Blah… Bordertown is gone…
