Seattle Parks and Recreation, CHAMPS Resource and Service Center, and Parents for Skateparks encourage the Rainier Beach community to participate in upcoming design forums for a new Rainier Beach Skate Park. Please join us online on January 19, April 20 and July 20 from 6-8 p.m. on Zoom. To register for the online meeting, please visit https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdRjiwHO2qUNYAkmwH5qpwZ1xrpV5jwei3gJ0QYS0HC2iDtBA/viewform.
Over the past four years, CHAMPS has held events to discuss a new skateboard park in Southeast Seattle that would appeal to young people and provide a safe gathering place. They partner with Parents for Skateparks and are excited to work with the community on the design.
This project includes a feasibility study, design and cost estimate for a new skateboard park at Rainier Beach Playfield. It is funded by the Department of Neighborhoods, Neighborhood Match Fund. This is a community driven project and construction is currently unfunded. The design will naturally integrate skateboarding into the surrounding landscape and feature a mix of street-style and transitional terrain, with elements for all age groups and ability levels. It will attract local users to the skatepark and challenge both beginners and experienced users.
The new Rainier Beach Playfield Skatepark will be a great addition to the Rainier Beach Community Center, local sports activity schools, Link2Lake project “Where is the beach”, the new Rainier Beach High School, and the many upcoming multi-family units in the neighborhood.
