Skate ParkScheduled Maintenance Closure: Closed July 19-22, 2014
After 10 years of service, the Skate Park at Southeast Clarke Park has been scheduled for maintenance repairs to the surfacing. Repairs will cut out several badly cracked areas and refinish them to seamlessly match the existing terrain. Crews will patch several minor defects in the surface and re-grout a section of brick coping which has come loose over time.
Complete closure of the park will be required during the work period in order to allow crews to properly shape and resurface the repaired areas and to allow new surfacing to properly setup and cure. Any traffic from patrons during the closure will result in damage to the surface, so we ask for cooperation from all patrons as we make these improvements.
The skate park is on the Lexington Road side of the park. The skate park was funded by SPLOST 2000 and is designed to accommodate both skateboards and BMX bikes. The skate park is 14,000 square feet in size. View the rules for the skate park.
The park features two main components including a bowl five to 10 feet in depth and approximately 4,500 square feet in size. The second component is a street course including ramps, grinding edges, rails, steps, and other unique features. This skate park is constructed entirely of either poured-in-place concrete or shotcrete and has a unique steel coping around the edges for grinding. The Tony Hawk Foundation donated $10,000 to be used toward the project.
