Scope of work: Design Build Skateparks
SPA Skateparks is proud to have worked with the City of Odessa to bring a site integrated, site built, and custom design-build skatepark oasis to West Texas. The well attended public input design process included meetings to gather ideas from local skaters and bikers on what they wanted to include in their skatepark. This was also our opportunity to answer many questions the community at large had regarding modern day skateparks and the implementation into the existing parks. SPA Skateparks is pleased to have partnered with our friends at New Line Skateparks in designing the Ruben Pier Memorial Skatepark in Odessa, Texas.
SPA Skateparks began construction of Odessa's new state of the art park in July 2009. Located in Sherwood Park, the skate park boasts an oil pump jack themed design, complimenting the prevalent West Texas oil industry. The plaza influenced street course includes unique art features and suspended props. A large bowl of 5', 6', and 7' depths along with bike peg proof metal detailing completes this one-of-a-kind concrete skatepark. Because of West Texas' flat landscape and subsequent lack of a nearby storm water drainage system, SPA Skateparks developed and installed an expansive drainage field that effectively directs and disperses skate park water run-off to the surrounding park.
Today, the Ruben Pier Memorial Skateparks continues to provide a safe, state-of-the-art skatepark for local skateboarders, bikers and inline skaters as well as a welcomed destination for families traveling in West Texas.
