COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Vans Skate Space 198 is officially open to the public, designed with New York skaters in mind to eliminate the need to brave the cold to practice year-round. The new indoor facility is located in the rich, cultural enclave of Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY, right off the L's Jefferson stop in Bushwick.

Vans Honors Brooklyn Culture in New Skatepark

Vans Skate Space 198's design is a true representation of both park and street, with several features inspired by classic New York City skate spots. In addition to features proposed by the local New York City skate community, the brand-new park is designed with a mix of unique materials and textures, making it a truly one-of-a-kind collaborative skate space in the heart of Brooklyn. With a variety of ledges, ramps, pipes, and more, the park is fit for beginners and local pros alike. With Vans Skate Space 198, Vans remains committed to fueling skateboard culture and progression, while providing a local platform for the greater Tri-State area to enjoy.

"We built this space with a skateboarding-first mindset, but as we continue to grow, we want to keep our ear to the ground and listen to what the community wants in order to tailor programming to this neighborhood," said Justin Villano, Vans' senior marketing manager of action sports.

The new park represents another way Vans is investing in local communities and fans to make skateboarding accessible to all. Vans has applied the brand's DIY ethos by opening the space to artists and musicians to enable creative expression throughout the year.

"We designed Vans Skate Space 198 as a space that reflects the unique culture of Brooklyn and the skaters that call New York home," said Zach Sheats, Vans' Americas Brand Marketing Manager, Skateboarding. "Vans has always been dedicated to creative expression within skateboarding and beyond. This is reflected in the new skatepark as the brand has kept local skate and street culture in mind throughout the entire process."
