New La Puente Skatepark Prepares to Open to the Public

Although construction of La Puente’s new skatepark is complete, due to COVID-19, the official grand opening has been delayed until early January.

In the meantime, we’ve snuck in a few final quality control sessions with professional skateboarders including Matt Berger and Vincent Luevanos to make sure everything is perfect.

The 10,000 square foot space is located at La Puente City Park, just 20 miles from downtown LA, and is officially named the Ian Calderon Skatepark in honor of California State Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon who secured the project’s funding several years ago.

Spohn Ranch’s unique design features an architectural aesthetic paying homage to the urban plazas skateboarders crave, along with several skateable sculptures that create artistic visuals.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, we also took on the basketball courts as part of our construction scope.
