Lyon Getting A Skatepark?

Things are all a bit up in the air at the moment concerning Lyon getting a second free skatepark. Despite being home to France’s strongest skate scene and several skateshops, and two of Europe’s most notable skate companies (Cliché and Antiz), the town just can’t seem to get it together for a new concrete park to be built on the Rhone river bankside smack bang in the middle of town (below the graffiti ledges/miniramp for those who know…).

Apparently Jeremie Daclin is in heavy talks with the local politicians, and sketchs of a plaza with lovely connecting bowls are floating around somewhere… Note to Jeremie and Lyon officials – Look at Stoke and Prissick!
