While you were sleeping…

Cannon Beach

…they tore down the “skatepark” in Cannon Beach, Oregon. The old park, seen in all it’s glory above, thanks to Skateoregon.com, was more of a spot than a skatepark. It was less than stellar. You can catch a few frames of skating “action” at Seeside in the GVK episode Skate Ghost, at the 6:21 mark. The blog for Cannon Beach’s City Manager hasn’t been updated regarding the skatepark, but Placed to Ride has the contract and a picture of the construction company that was hired to do the retaining walls. I guess they (Mc Ewan Construction) also made a donation to the project. PTR should be breaking ground next week. I liked their work on Seaside, and given the size and location of the Cannon Beach plot, I’m predicting something similar in nature.

– Thanks to G.N. for the tip. (Who isn’t this G.N.)

    I’m loving the hamsters in a nest.

  2. Kilwag, you would have heard of this weeks ago if you read Sleestak…. ha ha….

    I hope PTR does a better job at Cannon Beach than they did at Seaside, which is so crowded it’s like a 15,000 sf design packed into 7000 sf or so.

  4. Bah! I like Seaside. It is small and packed, but it’s also different from the others. Not a destination park, but I’m sure it does exactly what the locals need. I wouldn’t want all parks to be like Seaside, but a few are fine.

    Yeah and if I spent all the time on Sleestak that I used to I wouldn’t have time to write here. Bobcat knows I still love him.

    I Agree I like Seaside too! Perfect beach destination park… feels like an unpredictable wave.

    I’ll shed a tear for Cannon Beach. One of the origional shitty parks of oregon, but always a novelty to skate at. :,(

    Back in the day Cannon Beach was the s&%t. We’d drive 8hrs to Richmond, 9 to north van, 3hrs to the Cage in Eugene, but to have Cannon Beach only 1hr away….sweet!
