What is best for Berlin? Skate Park, plaza, spot, art or ramps?on January 17th, 2011 at 9:29 pm
Presenting and exploring options along the way, with the ability to adapt to our own individual cities needs will be important. In the coming months we will be conducting several surveys in order to put together the options that make the most sense for our community. Our friends at Spohn Ranch and affiliates have very detailed websites explaining the options in more detail.
To get things started, we should take a minute and look at the options available.
Skateparks – This traditional form of skatepark is designed to accommodate skaters of all styles and ability levels, including street and bowl skaters.
Skate Plazas - Can be as large and complex as a traditonal skatepark, but focus on recreating real-world urban architecture in a skate-friendly way.
Skate Spots – Scaled down versions of Skate Plazas, this style of skatepark delivers the authentic street skating experience in a controlled environment.
Skateable Art – Sculptural pieces that help create the ultimate mixed-use public space and showcase the creativity and innovation of action sports athletes.
Ramp Parks – What many consider the traditional style of skatepark, ramp parks continue to play an important role in the skatepark spectrum.
