The Quilchena skatepark renovation on Vancouver's west side/Kerrisdale neighborhood is almost complete, with determined workers steaming ahead through some pretty junk weather. I stopped by today to have a look at the progress - it's definitely an improvement on a park that always had the potential to be a lot better. The main centerpiece bank was janky from the start, and it's now been remade well with much more user friendly angles and edges. The park has been widened slightly, with a new ledge added along the side. There's also a new quarter pipe hip, step up, curved ledge, and mini wavy quarter pipe thing on one side. If they keep the flatbar, it may be a bit cramped... but I have a feeling they're gonna plop it right back in the middle between the 2 ledges in my out of focus photo below. It may be a while before we get a dry day to try out the reno'd park, but I'm looking forward to it! Keep your ear to the streets so you know when the fences drop!
