H.B. OKs lease for first free Vans skate park

A free, world-class Vans skate park is very close to making a home in Huntington Beach.That would be a very good news since Vans lost a lease just a couple of weeks ago in Florida and had to close the local skatepark.
Huntington Beach Council members at a special meeting on Friday approved a lease agreement with VF Outdoor Inc. to construct a 50,000-square-foot park on nearly three acres at Gothard Street and Center Avenue.

The park would have a 14,000-square-foot skate park plaza, a 13,000-square-foot skate bowl and a 3,500-square-foot skate shop and concession stand. There will also be various landscaped areas, parking and a dedicated transit reserve area, which may possibly be a public transportation stop in the future, officials say.
Steve Van Doren, Vans vice president of events and promotions, said the hope is to have the permits approved by April and to build the park this summer.
“This will be the very first public, free park that Vans has ever done,” he said.
