Information About Skatepark

Slide 2:

A skatepark is an fitness facility - made and built precisely for skateboarders, in-line skaters and perhaps freestyle BMX riders. It gives a place to congregate, relax and accomplish skills in a safe and sound setting. Preferably, it should have a wall to guard visitors. Lighting is a great addition.

Slide 3:

For skateparks , concrete is the way to go. A concrete park presents a permanent and nearly maintenance-free answer to a cities skatepark needs. Plus, the vast majority of skaters favor concrete parks. A ramp park, regardless of whether fabricated from wood, steel or other materials should be considered only if the municipality already has an unwanted basketball, tennis court or parking lot available. These types of ramp structures are for short term use only. There is no good reason to make this type of facility if there are sufficient resources for a permanent facility. Under no situations should a city pour a slab of concrete to build temporary ramps as the funds would be much better expended building a permanent concrete skatepark to begin with.

Slide 4:

Nearly all concrete skateparks will cost between 20 and 25 dollars (USD) per square foot to build. ($270 USD per meter) That cost figure sometimes includes all design fees and services, construction materials and labor . However, that is just the skating area. That price will not involve typical options, such as bringing water and power to the site, fencing, lighting, bathrooms or landscaping. In general, parks worth building cost a minimum of $250,000. When compared to to the cost of other athletic facilities, that is really affordable.

Slide 5:

A skatepark made to fit all skill levels will be between 18,000 and 25,000 square feet. A park of 10,000 square feet is the absolute minimum recommended. It is essential not to straight combine beginner and intermediate/advanced areas as this design approach tends to be dangerous and leads to more accidents. It is recommended for you to identify the variety of events and features required for each skill level and then design buffer zones between each riding area. We know it can be a blast to zip full tilt around a park that really flows. But, it is more significant to be credible and create the skatepark not dangerous for all users at all instances of day.

Slide 6:

It is most beneficial for a municipality to have the goal of building multiple parks and locating them around the city, rather than building one large facility. The principle of satellite parks best serves the users of the facilities and substantially diminishes overcrowding at any one park. In many instances, skaters are too young to drive, and other forms of safe transportation to the one large skatepark may be unavailable. For a lot of communities a series of reasonably sized “ neighborhood ” parks is a more achievable long-range answer to their skatepark needs.
