Art in the Park!
[stag_intro]If you like art, and you are a fan of Edgewood Park, then divert your attention for one moment to watch this video and witness some of the 2014 transformation that took place at Coogan Pavilion and Skatepark in Westville.
The backstory: Edgewood Skate Park was built in the late 1990’s and had fallen into a state of disrepair. The main adjoining structure, Coogan Pavilion, suffered damage during a fire a couple of years ago. In 2014, the building was been patched up and fixed. Finally, Channel One (the only consistent local skate shop in the area for years) organized a graffiti jam. The event was held on October 25-26, 2014 and featured live painting, panel discussions, and workshops.
