TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A 40-year-old Tampa skateboard park that’s on the National Register of Historic Places will be demolished and relocated to another location in the city.

The Tampa Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1n1fq33) that the so-called Bro Bowl will be moved in order to redevelop Perry Harvey Sr. Park, which is named for one of Tampa’s most famous civil rights activists.

Supporters of the skateboard facility stymied the city’s original park restoration plan by winning federal historic recognition for the graffiti-covered concrete bowl.

As part of an agreement with state and federal historic preservation officials, the city plans to scan the Bro Bowl with lasers in a way that will allow the park to be exactly duplicated at its new site.
