About Us:
Designed for all skill levels, this competition-quality skate park on Rock Prairie Road consists of a large pro-style flow bowl, a pool bowl with tile and pool coping, and a long linear street course with hundreds of feet of unique terrain and scalable elements. Other features include water fountains, benches and a shaded patio area for spectators. The facility is mostly made of concrete, which is permanent and virtually maintenance-free.

Early ideas for the park sparked a grassroots effort by local enthusiasts in 2007, and city voters approved the $920,000 facility in a 2008 bond election. With extensive input from the public and local skateboarders, planning began in 2009 and construction started in April 2011.

The skate park was designed by Bleyl and Associates of Bryan in conjunction with Grindline, Inc., a specialty design firm based in Seattle, Wash. The park was constructed by JaCody, Inc. of College Station in association with SPA Skateparks of Austin.
