Are you a skateboarder? Or do you prefer skater? Perhaps one of your kids skates?

Work on the Shaw Skate Park at 11th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW started last Tuesday and will be finished in February 2011, according to DC Department of Parks and Recreation.

The renovation will include all concrete skate park equipment with steel enclosures, a new concrete surface pad and new fencing. There is also a new design planned for the facility.

The Shaw Skate Park is next to the soccer field and Shaw Dog Park on 11th Street NW. It is open every day all year long from dawn to dusk. Skateboarders skate unsupervised, but the city recommends that adults supervise children and that all skaters use standard safety equipment.
