We made a trip out to see the progress on the new skatepark in spring or actually Greenspoint. Things seem to be coming along well. Not too much to see but I thought it would be nice to share a few photos I took. I look forward to riding the concrete waves.
If you skate and live near Houston Texas you don’t want to miss this. Today January 7th 2013 at 10 am the city will break ground on the 2nd largest skate park in the world. Click the link above for details on where.
Remember God loves you and He is always willing to listen to your prayers. Peace be with you and I hope to see you at the ground breaking.
Thanks first to our Father God Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is through His blood we are saved. His grace and love are enough for you and me. Thanks to Shannon’s Street waves for sponsoring the event and the community of Magnolia for organizing the Love bug festival and allowing us to hold the competition.

Below is an article on the spring skateboard park that is about to be scratched for a new Greenspoint mall if we don’t act NOW. Do we really need a new mall?

Well an afternoon trip to magnolia is always relaxing. That Houston traffic dies off and the countryside shows off it beauty. There’s lots of shade here along with a small water park. The reason I’m here today is to scope out the power for our upcoming skateboard contest. I’ve only been here a couple of times before the park was still under construction. Here are a few photos I promised come join us June 10th at 12:30. Bring a few buck to donate to the Magnolia community foundation for entry into the contest. Thanks to Shannon’s street waves for sponsoring the contest along side of the Truthriders.
Attached is the flyer for the public input meeting tomorrow May 16 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. It is a follow up meeting to the initial public input meeting we had on May 2. We are unveiling design concepts at the meeting and need to get input from the public as to what design is best. Please help spread the word about the meeting! If folks cannot make the meeting, there is a website listed on the flyer with a user name and password whereby everyone can make their opinions known regarding the design of the skate park.
Last night the first meeting was held in Buda TX for community input on the design of the JTNMSP. Thanks to the city of Buda and parks director Jack Jones the family friends of Jackson for their involvement to make the dream of building this park come true. We’ll post photos of the proposed design as soon as we can.
