This video was shot at the Tamarac Skate park by Sunrise resident Austin Welker and features Josh Berrios on his BMX bike doing some pretty amazing tricks.
Josh Berrios is a sophomore at Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs and has been “BMXing” for four years. Although he lives in Coral Springs, he uses the Tamarac Skate park routinely.
Budding filmmaking Austin Welker, who enjoys rollerblading, is a Junior at Piper High School. He recently started filming and says it was great to have a chance to film Berrios and hopes to get a chance to film others from Atlantic bicycles, a sponsor of Berrios.
The official name of the Skate Park is the “Tamarac Skate Park,” but kids in the know call it the “Tamarac Free Park.” The reason why is because once they have registered (at no-charge) it’s absolutely free, unlike the skate park in Coral Springs which charges residents $3 and non-residents $7 each session. This is why the Tamarac Skate Park is so popular with so many skaters and there are no plans by the Parks and Recreation Department to change it.
The Tamarac Skate park is located at Located at 9901 N.W. 77 Street. Open Tuesday-Sunday. Users under age 18 must have the waiver and consent signed by a parent/legal guardian.
