Safe Spot Skate Spot in Phoenix, Arizona Opens July 16th, 2011

Just got word today from the City of Phoenix Parks Development and Planning Division that Rob Dyrdek’s Safe Spot Skate Spot (Safespot Skatespot) will open July 16th, 2011 at the Cesar Chavez Park in Phoenix, Arizona (35th avenue and Baseline Rd).

As you may recall, back on August 24th, 2010 the Rob Dyrdek Foundation, Street League Skateboarding and Monster Energy teamed up to donate the Street League Skateboarding course along with $50,000 to build the first Safe Spot Skate Spot in Phoenix, Arizona. It now looks like the highly anticipated new skatepark is opening very soon.

Below is information on Cesar Chavez park in Phoenix, Arizona:

UPDATE – 5/31/2011: According to a follow up e-mail from a City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department representative:

The plan is for the plaza to be completed by the time Dyrdek comes to town again in mid July. The plaza will be built at Chavez Park located at 35th Avenue and Baseline. The plaza will be located near the Softball Fields, just southwest of the Libary.

UPDATE – 6/18/2011:

We visited the new location of the Safe Spot Skate Spot in Phoenix, Arizona over the weekend to find just the area marked with a fence. No construction had begun from what we could see. Hope the company in charge of the construction is fast as this deadline is coming up quickly.

    C’mon now that new park will be stone throw from Laveen. You must live under a rock. PHoenix is getting close to having as many skate parks as golf courses. Take the bus down to PHX they run every 15 minutes. Laveen is not that far. Get on the light rail there are tons of skatespots from the light rail even Skate parks if you head east. TEmpe 2(bowel) and TEmpe 2.5 if you go east. You do know that there is a short cut from laveen to Pecos Skatepark. There is a 2 mile dirt road if you head south on 51st ave and head east once you pass south mountain and you will end up on Pecos road that will take you straigh to my favorite park Pecos. I always run into the local pros there. Murawski, Cannon.

    I live in Tempe now but I’m from a town where there’s not even a skatepark for 20miles so I wouldn’t complain about not being able to skate street sPots. Ive skated for 10 years with nothing.
