Grand Central Skate Spot
Grand Central Skate Spot was a 22,000 sqft DIY skate space in the heart of downtown Miami. This project was a collaborative effort brought to life by Brad Knoeffler and Mark Lesniak of the O.P.R.A. and Skate Free. Grand Central allowed the skaters of the community to imagine and create a skatepark of their own. Each obstacle in the park was donated or constructed by the skaters themselves. Grand Central Skate Spot became the central skateboarding location for skaters to recreate, practice and interact in Miami.
