Free LOVE Park

Coalition Proposal

On July 22, 2003 the Coalition to Free LOVE Park proposed the following, which has received very positive feedback from citizens and government:

  • Bring back some marble benches; remove some of the pink planters to make the park more friendly to skaters.
  • Restrict skating hours to after 3 p.m. on weekdays.
  • Protect the park's surfaces (for instance, by using polymer coating or steel tips).
  • Support the recently passed legislation imposing fines for skating on private property.
  • Establish a nonprofit "Friends of LOVE Park" organization, to raise money to maintain and improve LOVE Park.
  • Use the former Visitors Center as a skateboarding hall of fame or cafe to generate additional traffic and to raise revenue for the "Friends of LOVE Park." homepage
