Local skaters test Philly's new Franklin's Paine Park

It may not be iconic Love Park, but after a first look at Philly's newest haven for skateboarders, Franklin's Paine Park, there's still plenty to love.

Wedged between the Schuylkill River and the Art Muesem, Paine Park offers plenty of ramps, rails, and pipes. It also boasts a great view, especially at night. But perhaps most importantly, the cops won't hassle you or kick you out.

The guys at Nocturnal Skate Shop filmed the following video there. Nocturnal is owned by pro skater Kerry Getz and is located at 533 South Street.
