The fences came down yesterday at the Jefferson Park Skatepark — it’s now fully open to skate! According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, “The new park features the deepest bowl in Seattle, with shallower bowls alongside, a hexagonal elevated dish, great street features and lighting. The skatepark also features one of the best views of Seattle.”
The park was designed by Grindline Skateparks Inc., in collaboration with The Berger Partnership and with input from several community meetings. It was funded by the Parks and Green Spaces Levy which contributed $1,000,000. SubPop Records contributed an additional $10,000.
The Jefferson Park Skatepark is located at 3801 Beacon Ave. S., behind the Jefferson Community Center.
Also of interest to Beacon Hill skaters is the Benefit Park Skatedot, which is currently in the design phase.

man, i love the skate park. but wow, the $1.01M price tag puts me in some sick sticker shock…
WOW! we had ramps in the middle of beacon back jn the 80’s! bout time!
its funny iv skated 12foot bowls in wa so you must not know what your talking about or must not get out much. its a ok park grind line is known for bowls the street area is kinda small but the bowl is nice. i hear alot of people say the deep end sucks but i like it my self. the lights suck not very bright and it shuts off if you dont hit a button every couple min delridge is new and almost better almost.
“you must not know what your talking about or must not get out much” — who are you arguing with?
Forget the $1.01M price tag of this skate park… I am more concerned by the poor diction, failed punctuation, and incoherent ramblings of “ha ha ha.” Not funny!
