How Much Does A Skatepark Cost?

Well, long story short, there is a nearby park totally interested in a park. I would really love one and I want to keep it on the affordable side, but still pretty nice. Technical and park stuff. I have had a little trouble trying to figure it out. Basically, i know it would be really hard to get a giant ass bowl park and stuff. I mainly want a more pre fabricated thing. Ideally, around 20,000 to 35,000 dollars would be ideal. I'm wondering what we can get for that, how we can get it, and stuff that would be good?

let x=the price of a skatepark in dollars
therefore we can say that $1≤ x≤ $ ∞

Jump on craigslist and get all the free materials yoy can get your hands on. Alot of construction site will have left over concrete after they're done, you could always ask to buy it or if they'll give it to you.

^ the genius who stole my thoughts..... ._.

Yeah aha but some construction sites may have left over concrete and stuff that you could ask for- just ask around I guess.... There's probably a few companies that make bowls and that anyway, idk smile

I thought concrete parks run between $100-200k? Wood would probably fit your budget tho, but then you have to worry about the elements if it's outside. We used to have one in my old city and it only lasted a few years even with minimal rain. Plus you gotta figure the labor rates for the builders. I'd call California Skateparks before anyone. They're the ones that build most of the parks around the country since the owner is friends with Rob Dyrdek. Dude does amazing work

A park with a bunch of small, technical things, CAN'T cost that much. haha If thats all we have, thats fine, but i really wanna have like a decent half pipe, a decent box jump, some nice technical things, and some stuff little kids can enjoy. It seems some parks have stuff little kids can't even come close to having fun on because of how big it is. I'd want this park to make all the people happy.

Contact construction companies and see if they will donate, contact other cities with parks similar in size to what you are thinking and see if they have cost ideas for you as well. Honestly this is your best bet.

If you look up Tartan Park in Hutchinson MN, that was around 10 grand for the 3 ft truride ramps (gray and black) and the wood obstacles with black were added two separate times, they were around 2-5 grand EACH.

If it is a CITY park, he won't be able to UNLESS he is a LICENSED CONTRACTOR.

From what I get, it is a city park that wants to add a skatepark, and he is helping with design/cost. Correct me if I am wrong.

If I was you, I would contact other nearby cities with parks, and ask about costs, and maintaining the park as well. Get an idea for sizing of the park, ask about insurance too and max height of ramps (some states have height requirements for free parks, MN is 4 foot, WI is 6 or 8) and then come up with a rough design (collaborate with locals on that), THEN bring it to a few contractors to have them do cost bids, and bring those to the parks and rec board.

Also you will have to have meetings with townspeople so they can voice opinions on whether or not they are ok with it being there.

Good estimates for OP. $500k would be a pretty nice budget. Street parks are easy and still average about $100-200k, so technical vert/pool stuff will be double that. Design, concrete and labor isn't cheap OP. I think there's alot more aspects and little details that you're not taking into consideration, but unfortunately will have to. Design, grading, digging, drainage, maintenance, etc, and everything has to be done up to city/state code. That's the problem with outdoor city parks. Alot easier for a private owner to just buy a warehouse and build some wooden ramps. But then it's privately owned and funded, so they can impose whatever rules they feel like, charge admission, and still have to worry about getting shut down if they don't make enough to pay rent. We see it all the time

Eastwood was built off donations and grants. Look for any skatepark oriented grants you're city/town could apply for. And make it clear you ride a bike. Don't wanna end with a park that don't allow bikes.

The insurance is probably more expensive than the park itself

A shitty park around here was 750 000$ and it was built in the ghettoest part of my town . Buy a flatrail buy Subrosa for 200$ and build a ledge and sesh that .
