What You Should Know
Skateboarding has no set arena or rules and skateparks have no standard design structure, unlike organized sports, like basketball and football. Every skatepark is specifically designed to provide its users with unique challenges. However, there are three main skatepark design categories: bowls, street squares and flow parks.
Bowl Parks are planned to mimic and improve the experience of pool skating. Skaters in bowl parks can move around the park without pushing out their feet. In addition to skating back and forth, the curved walls of bowls allow skateboarders to ride around and across a bowl on a typical half pipe. Bowls and bowl parks come in many forms and sizes, but the majority of bowls are from 3' to 12' wide.
Street Plaza Parks are the favorite of the vast majority of skaters, designed to emulate and improve the experience of skating. Obstacles in a street plaza look like street natural terrain like stairs, railings, planters and benches. Skater starts off with their feet in a street square to gain momentum. Vancouver Skate Plaza, built in 2004 by New Line Skateparks, is the first public outdoor skate plaza.
Flow parks (or park-style parks) combine elements of both bowling parks and road squares. A skater can pump curved walls, such as quarter pipes, pump bumps, bowl corners in a well-designed flow field, without moving off his feet. You can use this pace to reach road barriers including ramps, railings and benches.
