etnies Skatepark Free for Second Year of Operation

$30,000 Donation to Offset Costs and Keep Park Free in 2005

This week, Pierre Andre Senizergues, owner and CEO of etnies, presented the Lake Forest City Council with $30,000 to keep the etnies Skatepark free of charge for another year. Senizergues also made a generous donation to the City in 2003 to make the park free to all guests during its first year of operation.

In addition to this donation, Senizergues is continuing to work with public and private community organizations to provide kids with a safe place to skate and ride BMX bikes at no charge.

” We are really proud of the continued popularity of the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, ”  said Senizergues. “It is my passion to provide kids with a park to skate at no charge. The etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest is truly about giving back to the kids in the community, and we look forward to working with the City of Lake Forest to continue making this a reality.” 

The etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest is currently one of the largest skateparks in the nation with over 40,000 square feet of terrain. The park was created by etnies and the City of Lake Forest with strong community support and input, and is currently skated by more than 1,500 visitors a week.
