Skateboarding has been part of Santa Cruz-area culture for nearly half a century. This season, there’s a new spot to grind: just a block off Highway 1 in Aptos at Seacliff Village Park, Seacliff Skate Park features “skateable art,” a view of the Monterey Bay and the topography of the park references the SS Palo Alto, Aptos’ famed “concrete ship”, which graces the end of the pier at Seacliff State Beach, a 10-minute walk away. The 1.25-acre Seacliff Village Park boasts drought-resistant foliage and street trees, and a 15,000-square-foot center area landscaped with drought-resistant turf. Several local artists created design features throughout the park.
