A hybrid style skatepark that is build into the south slope of the newly constructed 4th Avenue Park (official park name pending).
The skatepark features: -11,119 square feet of skating terrain -64 foot long brick embankment (not stamped...we used real clay bricks!) -28 foot long hubba ledge (spanning three terraces) -Gaps -Cantilevered banks -Rollovers, hips, escalators, trany walls, half pipe, pool coping w/ tile...plenty of flow for the old school and old school at heart. -Dragon Rail, flat rail, slant rail -Manual pad -Stepped ledges, 5 different slant ledges (goofy and regular foot) -Jersey barrier style bank -As with all of my skatepark designs, there are plenty of funky shaped elements that you can get creative with.
The 4th Avenue Skatepark was designed by Charles H. Strawter Design Inc. as a subconsultant to Katherine Spitz Associates Inc., the prime consultant and landscape architect for the 4th Avenue Park project. The skatepark builder is Geocon Engineering a subcontractor to CS Legacy Construction Inc.
The park is being developed by the Community Design Commission of Los Angeles, under the jurisdiction and management of Los Angeles County Department of Parks & Recreation.
