    Biography/Organization History

    Skategarden Park includes a skate park and community garden, and is located on Laguna Park Way in Sebastopol, California, across from The Barlow. It was built in 2008 and and contains a 15,000 square foot state-of- the-art skate structure and 23 community garden plots. There is also an "art wall" where anyone can paint, and which changes on a weekly basis. The City of Sebastopol purchased an adjacent half-acre site for expansion of the Skategarden Park and completed construction in summer 2016, with a ribbon cutting on Sept. 13, 2016. The expansion added play equipment, pathways, landscaping of both native and fruit trees, a shade structure, drinking fountains, barbecues and benches.
