Welcome to Englewood Florida

These pictures are from the Grande Opening of the new
J.M Berlin/Rotary Oyster Creek Regional Skate Park

in Englewood Florida


The Englewood Rotary was selling T-shirts and skateboards
at the entrance of the new Skate Park

The kids sat patiently waiting for the gates to open


The opening ceremonies were short and sweet



Charlotte County Commissioner accepts a $20,000 donation
from the Englewood Rotaries

The ribbon cutting ceremony

The gates open... and the new J.M.Berlin / Rotary Skate Park is open for fun

Let the skating begin !


Skate Guards watch over the action to keep the kids safe
just as they do at a swimming pool.

This half-pipe makes a good practice area

Climbing the walls seems to come easy for some of these kids


Mother and Son

If you lose your momentum while in the deepest pits...
you will have to find a way to climb out... as there are no stairs


Scratches on the bottom of the skate board are totally acceptable wear and tear



Ready  - Set  -   Skate

Some of the skate areas look like a giant swimming pool... only without the water :)


Not everyone needs a concrete ramp to get airborn


However... the adventourous ones love the big ramps to get them high on excitement

The landings are always... exciting :)

What looks like a perfect jump...

Doesn't always end with perfect landing


But everyone is required to wear safety equipment... including helmet, elbow & kneepads



Ouch!   Brushburned palms...

Do ya think that hurt ?


No pain  -  No gain :)

(interesting photo though... don't you think?)

The Berlin family was very instrumental in the creation of this new 
Skate Park here in Englewood Florida because of the large donation made by his wife Jean Berlin in memory of her late husband John.
