Last week Far Rockaway’s first skateboard park, located between Beach 11 and Beach 13 Streets on Seagirt Boulevard, was opened to the public. On Sunday The Wave found the rink filled with skateboarders testing out the facility. The rest of Rockaway Park East, from Beach 13 Street to Beach 17 Street, is due to be completed by next spring.



In addition to the rink is a play section for children, and new basketball courts (behind the play area). In addition to the rink is a play section for children, and new basketball courts (behind the play area).
