Under the Bridge: 25 Years of Fighting for Burnside Skatepark

This is a story of the Burnside skatepark. First ever D.I.Y. concrete skatepark. 25 years ago a group of bored skateboarders took a bag of stolen concrete underneath the Burnside Bridge and built a small bank up against it’s back wall. Without knowing it, they would change the face of skateboarding, creating an international landmark skaters pilgrimage to every day. Since that day, the same guys who built it have been fighting to keep it around.
