Check out the Spring issue of SKATEPARK INSIDER, the official publication of the Tony Hawk Foundation, and the great write up of McBride Skatepark.

"Tony Hawk and a group of pro athletes joined about 300 city officials and local youth in February for the grand opening of the Ernest McBride Skatepark in Long Beach, California. The Poly High neighborhood, where the skatepark is located, is home to one of the country’s most diverse urban communities, yet few recreational opportunities are available for its youth. The new 10,000-square-foot skate plaza is considered by local leaders as the area’s best chance to keep kids active, healthy, and safe from gangs and crime."
