The La Cañada Flintridge Skate Park on Cornishon Avenue is expected to see small but substantial improvements in coming months as new ramps are added and the ground resurfaced. All this without crowding out the adjoining public basketball court, which also will be resurfaced and re-striped as part of a city planned capital improvement project. The project will cost about $174,000 and is expected to be paid for through state grant funds, said Carl Alameda, management analyst for the city of La Cañada Flintridge.

About five dozen adults, teens and youngsters lined the fence outside the La Cañada Flintridge Skate Park Monday afternoon as city officials spoke briefly and cut a large red ribbon celebrating the grand re-opening of the park. The park — which first opened its gates in July 2001 — was the brainchild of former councilman and mayor and current state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, who did not attend Monday’s event. Current La Cañada Mayor Steve Del Guercio gave a short speech at the ceremony, honoring Portantino for working with city staff and the school district to create the park, which began at a cost of about $20,000.
