Someone built a secret skate park on the island in Green Lake

July 19, 2017

It was fun while it lasted, but after a tiny skate park was found on Green Lake's Duck Island, it seems like time is up on the secret is out and the Parks Department isn't too stoked.

According to reports from King 5, a group had paddled out to the tiny island on Green Lake with concrete, hoses, and other building material to build a small bowl in the woods. 

Duck Island is located on the northwest side of Green Lake off the park with the tennis courts and Seattle Public Theater. The builders would have had to kayak, row, or canoe their way out to the island with any supplies they used to build the structure.

It's illegal to go out to Duck Island due to safety reasons, but the area isn't monitored by a lifeguard. Authorities are said to be heading out to remove the structures immediately.

As far as I can find, the project was filmed and used to compete in a D.I.Y. skate park building contest for Transworldand could be connected to the Capitol Hill skate shop 35th North, but they claim to have no connection with the project.

Should the crafty skaters be able to keep their skate park in the woods? Let me know what you think!
