More than 60 residents joined city officials, skatepark design consultant Aaron Spohn of Spohn Ranch and organizers with local nonprofit Capistrano Grind at the San Juan Community Center on Wednesday to collect ideas and feedback on potential features for the city’s future skatepark, which will be located at the San Juan Capistrano Sports Park.

Spohn kicked off the workshop with a presentation on park specifics, including opportunities for mixed use space, seating and spectator areas, different types of skating features, protective fences and ideas for creating an iconic design unique to San Juan Capistrano. Following the presentation, participants had the opportunity to fill out surveys and sketch out ideas to get the ball rolling.

For more information on skatepark progress and future workshops, contact the city’s Community Services Department at 949.443.6388, follow Capistrano Grind Skatepark on Facebook or email Nathan Banda at
