Scope of work: Design Build Skateparks
The design-build Boerne Skatepark in the Texas Hill Country started with an elementary school library packed with 75 local youth and skaters giving their input during the skatepark design process. What was everyone screaming for? The City and community of Boerne wanted a facility that showcased their historic Hill Country town. Skaters wanted a traditional street plaza layout with perfect street influenced obstacles. The resulting skatepark design includes approximately 7,500 square feet of pure skate plaza terrain with integral colored concrete ribbons representing arts, crafts and quilt work the area is known for.
The Boerne Texas Skatepark was designed to influence a real street plaza style setting. Features include multiple stair sets, down ledges and rails, cantilevered banks and quarter pipes and a signature "Maloof" feature replica from the Maloof Money Cup Contest. The inclusion of red and brown integral colored concrete and a semi-shade structure with seating add to the very comfortable and appealing setting within the many, large oak trees. Amenities include a restroom facility, skatepark ADA access, trash receptacles, and a lit parking lot. SPA Skateparks is proud to have partnered with our friends at New Line Skateparks for the Boerne Texas Skatepark project.
SPA Skateparks completed the Boerne Texas Skatepark within budget and in time for the grand opening, timed appropriately on International Go Skateboarding Day on July 21st 2010. SPA helped organize the grand opening event by inviting regional skate teams, action sports company donations and MC'ing a skate demo. The Mayor, City Council and staff are amazed at the number of skaters, and their families, who now enjoy the skatepark on a daily basis. The Boerne Texas Skatepark has been receiving rave reviews from the nearby San Antonio area and is now considered one of the most "real street" skateparks in the State.
