Milpitas, CA Vans closes their doors

Vans Skatepark of Milpitas, CA.

     Today, November 13, 2004, the Vans Skatepark in Milpitas, CA closed it's doors after its last 6pm session. Vans had announced this closure on November 11, 2004, but the future for the massive space at the Great Mall of the Bay Area is still unclear. The Milpitas Vans Skate Park had only been open since June 22, 2000 and offered an 80-foot vertical ramp, an extensive street course, two in-ground cement pools, a small outdoor area and much more. would like to thank Vans for the years that the Milpitas Skate Park did have. It was a large skatepark and while it was definitely more for skateboarders, rollerbladers would always find unique things to do -- such as stalling the fencing way above the coping of the bowl with mouse ears. Best wishes to Vans and their future skateparks.
