Graffiti at Greer Park skate bowl

I noticed four or five elements at the Greer Park skate ball that seemed to rise to the level of art; skaters say it damages the grip, detracts from the ride; others say the park is not suited for beginners and is not state of the art. Should Palo Alto renovate this park or create a second skate park? it’s on the agenda for an upcoming City Council meeting with Alison Cormack and Greg Tanaka taking the lead.

Maybe as a stopgap or provisional measure we could identify a built feature and designee that is a skate park that is to say offer amnesty to Street skaters. See also the four stairs at Wallenberg high school and this video of Chris Cole trying 67 times to land a trick:
