Lakeland Skatepark Innoskate 2014 Planning

The Boardr crew was recently in Lakeland for a meeting with city officials and representatives from the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. to discuss an event involving the Lakeland Skatepark and the Polk Museum of Art. Innoskate 2013 was an event at the Smithsonian that brought a lot of attention to skateboarding, its influence on culture, and its amazing evolution over the last several decades. The event we're working on in Lakeland will highlight and celebrate a lot of the same things. While we met at the Lakeland Skatepark early that morning, I shot a few photos of everything there. Team Pain and the Lakeland locals that helped design it did a great job with this Park. What's wrong with Tampa and why don't we have something like this already? It's because something got old and forgotten about, then suddenly ended up being a roadblock to progression. I hope our city can work through that mess and get us out of 1970's skateboarding soon.
