Scope of work: Design Build Skateparks
The Chisholm Trail Skatepark officially opened at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, 2016.
The City of Fort Worth's first public skatepark is located just East of Chisholm Trail Parkway (Tollway) on McPherson Blvd and is part of the brand new Chisholm Trail Park. Ample parking for the skatepark is available within Chisholm Trail Park or at the Chisholm Trail Recreation Center.
The City of Fort Worth's design build public skatepark project began with a series of public input meetings where local skaters provided terrain types, skate features and theme ideas. SPA Skateparks, along with our friends at New Line Skateparks, developed a skate park consisting of a 6 ft, 7 ft, 9 ft pool with pool coping, and several areas of plaza terrain. The main plaza line is perfect for multiple trick runs and is meant to represent the history of the Chisholm Trail. Texas ranchers would move their cattle from South Texas to the Oklahoma border. And then onwards to the cattle markets of the East Coast.
A 24 ft x 24 ft pavilion provides plenty of shade for when you need to cool down. A few benches and trash recepticles are places within the skate park as part of the amenities package. A xeriscaped landscape area with natural grasses, yuccas and native river rock is at the center of the skatepark.
