If the Ocean Beach Skatepark is looking a little less ragged lately, you can thank Newbreak Church in Ocean Beach. The newly opened church on Cape May Avenue has a volunteer gardening group that gets together once a month, usually on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. until noon. Gardeners weed, clean, and mulch the area.
Years of city budget cuts have resulted in a lesser degree of grounds maintenance at Robb Field, and the skatepark has suffered from lack of attention. Overgrown weeds, dead and dying trees, plus shrubbery and ground cover ravaged by disease have been an eyesore.
