BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – A newly renovated skate park in Jamaica Plain has already been covered in graffiti before its official opening.

Renovations for the park, located between Oakdale and Amory street will cost up to 75 thousand dollars. However, the state will pick up the tab with the help of a couple private donors

Before being official dedicated, the park is already a collection of colorful slogans and sketches.

“As a matter of fact, it was pretty good.”

Bob Delmonico was with a contractor who helped build the park. He said the graffiti could be up for interpretation and that none of it appears to be offensive.

“Some of it does look good,” Delmonico said, “some good artists are in there.”

Delmonico also believes that the graffiti will keep coming back.

“As soon as they finish painting it gives them more encouragement to do it again.”

The Department of Conversation and Recreation will provide 50 thousand dollars for the renovations and the additional 25 thousand will come from Converse and Wheels of Steel.
