Team Pain sent in a few pics of the Englewood Florida skatepark that is under construction. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because we covered it in January when a woman donated 200k to the mysterious project. I say mysterious because the only web presence for the city seems to be owned by a newspaper conglomerate that publishes for several small towns in the area. There is vague, limited information about the community. If I lived there I would find it kind of disturbing to have my town’s official news dissemination in the hands of a private company. But I’m getting way off track here. There are more pics and enlargements after the jump.
Englewood Florida Skatepark Construction by Team Pain
I can’t find a layout of this park anywhere. If you know where one is please send it in. There are a few more construction pics from earlier in the process over at Concrete Disciples. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a skatepark under construction where they pour the flat bottom of a bowl before the tranny, but you can see that’s how Team Pain does it if you follow the link.
Update: Link to the J.M. Berlin Rotary Skate Park MySpace page thanks to commentor Ed who says it’s not up to date at this time.
This photo was taken 2007 B.C. (Before Coping!)
And this one is after coping.

A very nice looking brick bank under construction.
James Hedrick again. I guess it works…
Fun for all ages!
