Arahama, Wakabayashi Ward, Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture “Skate Park CDP”

In an area where it is now forbidden to live, the skatepark owner Kida and his friends talked about making a space where people could have fun. They wanted to make a place where people can gather with their skateboards, and this was how the skatepark was born. With help from friends and acquaintances, they created with their own hands a place (course) where people can enjoy skateboarding, on the spot where his house used to be.
CDP stands for Carpe Diem Park, where Carpe Diem is Latin for “seize the day.”
