What We're Reading About: Lake Dolores "Waterpark"
The legendary Lake Dolores waterpark has recently been listed for $11million. We have been watching videos of this place since we were groms and can't stand the thought of seeing it go. Ideal scenario- Tony Hawk buys the place and recreates Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. We can dream right?
At this point we can only hope that someone comes in with an effort to preserve the rich art and skate history that now surrounds this location.
It has been almost two decades since the Mojave Desert, California park was abandoned in 2004 after three attempted launches and closures over the past 60 years.
“I’ve visited the park several times over the years since it was first abandoned, and each time it is slightly more decayed and weather-beaten – not to mention covered in spray paint,” said the Nevada photographer Shaun, who took the photos in mid-September and asked his last name not be used.
And of course we cannot complete this article without a little video showing this place in it's hayday. See video below:
