A lifelong San Dimas resident, 23-year-old Savannah Spillman discovered San Dimas’s very own skatepark just three years ago when she started learning how to skateboard. In that short time, Savannah fostered a sense of community among the skating youth, became known as “Skatepark Mom,” and submitted a proposal to the City Council and Parks and Recreation Commission to improve lighting and safety at the skatepark. Listen to this episode to learn more about skate culture in San Dimas and hear some sage advice that may even inspire you to pick up a skateboard.
