DESCRIPTION

The Northeast Community Skatepark in Frisco has a staggering 47,000 square feet of skateboarding terrain, making it the second-largest skatepark in Texas! The City of Frisco Texas Northeast Community Park is located near the intersection of Panther Creek Parkway and and Honey Grove Drive. The skatepark is situated between, and connected to, one of the park's main car parking areas and pond. Shade is provided by both nearby oak trees and custom shade structures within the skatepark terrain. A fully developed skatepark lighting system allows users to ride after school during the winter months and in the cooler evening hours of the summer time. Restrooms and water fountain facilities are located just 100 yards away. Serving as the skatepark construction subcontractor for the project, SPA Skateparks' scope of work included fine shaping of the skatepark earthwork, concrete and shotcrete work, and metal fabrication. 

SKATEPARK TERRAIN

The Northeast Community Skatepark in Frisco, Texas is a destination-sized, all-wheeled sports facility that caters to skateboards, bikes, in-line skates and scooters. It has been designed to accommodate users of all ages and skill levels - from kids to grey beards, and beginners to professionals. With over an acre of of custom-designed skatepark surface, this skatepark has A LOT OF EVERYTHING....FOR EVERYONE. There are generally three main skatepark areas in the linear design.

First, an extremely varied and massive plaza area runs the entire length of the skatepark, from the parking lot to the pond. Granite ledges, manual pad complexes, ledges, stairs, hips and pretty much anything you can think of is in this area. Just a few features include: 

  • A 16 foot tall over-vertical "Concrete Wave" 
  • 16 ft wide custom fabricated, perforated metal barrier that transitions between the plaza and flow bowl areas.
  • black granite capped ledges - flat
  • bench seat ledges
  • wedge-to-wedge
  • stairs sets, banks, quarters, rails
  • ledge and manual complexes
  • curb cut
  • bank-to-barrier
  • volcano

The second main area consists of a multi-depth extremely large flow bowl. The deep end includes a 6 foot tombstone extension and central pump bump. At the opposite end is a massive over-vertical pocket. No coping blends, bumps, a custom fabricated metal jersey barrier and other features provide users with endless lines and transfer opportunities. 

  • About every height and transition possible from 5 ft to 9 ft depths
  • 6 ft tall "tombstone" extension in the 8 ft deep bowl section
  • 5 ft tall roll-in
  • pump bump
  • 15.5 ft tall over-vertical capsule

Finally, a contest ready pool complete with wrap around skatepark pool coping and tile detailing. Browse through photos of the City of Frisco's Northeast Community Skatepark on this web page. 

  • 7 ft, 7.5 ft, 9.5 ft with 1.5 ft of vertical
  • 3.5 ft waterfall between the shallow and deep ends
  • pool coping and tile

HISTORY & MASTER PLAN

The City’s $16 million budget for Phase 1 of the park covers the skate park, concession and storage buildings, restroom facilities, pond, new trails and fields among other amenities. While traditional park features will be used primarily on evenings and weekends, the skatepark will serve as the focal point of activity for the entire park at all times. The 75 acre master plan for the NE Community Park was originally adopted in 2014.
