Iconic Venice Beach Skate Park Filled With Sand to Deter Skateboarders
The famous skate park in Venice Beach has been filled with sand to deter skateboarders and people congregating nearby amid the worsening global pandemic. From an empty Times Square to an empty Las Vegas strip, this is yet another eerie image that Covid-19 has produced.
Aerial photos and video captured by Hunter Weiss have sparked a conversation about the tactic, as dozens of homeless people within sight of the legendary skate park continue to sleep and congregate in the area.
Some LA residents think the cost and resources used to fill the skate park with sand could have been better used to help some of the homeless people in the area.
