This video was filmed in Lexington, Kentucky in late 2014 early 2015. Woodland park was built and open to the public in 1885 and is a very popular area in the city. Mostly for the poverty stricken and homeless alike.
The skatepark is located only feet away from a public swimming pool tucked in the corner of the park. Less than three blocks away from the late Hellbellies Skateshop.
It is constantly over ran by aggressive sports. Saturated by local skateboarders and has played host to quite a few extreme sporting events. Growing up and visiting it was always a thrill.
Now that it is only a few miles away, well let’s just say we get it in fairly often. The future of the Lexington Kentucky skate scene is looking bright and packed full of rollerblading.
The new generation falling in line is surprisingly intrigued and a few of them aren’t scared to try something scary. The adult rollerbladers are still popping in and out.
As you can see from the deal, more than a couple of “local legends” decided to snag a piece.
We are happy to be hear and happy to be part of the growing scene. Cheers to the future LXKY, let’s skate some more sometime, eh? – Southernscum.com.
