Ken Wormhoudt Skate Park

225 San Lorenzo Boulevard
Santa Cruz, CA 95060


Since 1996, the City had been striving to fulfill the recreational need for a permanent skate park. Derby Park, constructed over 25 years ago, did not meet the demand for a contemporary skate park, and the temporary Fun Spot skate park was intended as an interim solution.

In late 2003, City Council designated Mike Fox Park as the preferred skate park site and in 2004 gave the skate park final appoval. In early 2006, the Parks and Recreation Department issued a Notice Inviting Proposals for construction of the Skate Park Project at Mike Fox Park. The project included a 15,000 square foot skate park,a parking lot and streetscape improvements.

In March 2006, the City received four proposals to construct the Mike Fox Skate Park project. The lowest cost proposal received for the project was submitted by AJ Vasconi Engineering. This contractor was highly qualified and had constructed numerous skate parks throughout California, including the recently completed skate park in Pacifica.
