What’s happening at the circle
SKATE CIRCLE REPAIRS—UPDATES
A Message from Bob Nichols, CPDSA President
The latest repairs made to the newly resurfaced Skate Circle’s pavement were another disappointment. Small sections that were falling apart were patched with increasingly smaller sections. These sections make it harder for us to skate, because we keep hitting seams and sections with different roughness and a change in friction from the areas directly next to therm. This keeps us off balance and unable to trust that the surface will be continuous.
The Conservancy Capital Project and planning group would not listen to our concerns from the very beginning of this project or even after repeated disasters! They seem to think they know what we need better than we do, but they were and remain totally clueless. At this point the funds allocated for this project have essentially been wasted and the surface just keeps getting worse.
UPCOMING SKATE SESSIONS
Skate Circle Operating Time
CPDSA WILL RETURN IN APRIL 2023 AS SOON AS THE WEATHER IS WARM ENOUGH. Skating sessions take place on most Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays from April through October. The music plays from 2:45 pm to 6:45 pm, weather permitting. Note that other events may preempt the sessions. Make sure you check our schedule before you come to the Skate Circle.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
We need help from you, our Skaters and Other Supporters, to secure a safe storage area near the Park where we can keep our sound equipment and charge our batteries. We also need a van or large SUV to transport our gear from storage to the Park and back to storage.
A storage space with electric outlets were promised to us back in 1995, but that promise has not been fulfilled since renovations of the bandshell have started in 2019.
