SLO Skate Park

RRM Design Group worked with the City of San Luis Obispo, Wormhoudt Inc., and a specially convened local Skate Park Committee to develop a 15,500 square foot in-ground concrete park. Recognizing that the skate park was only one component of the overall recreational experience within Santa Rosa Park, RRM shaped the skate park into a flexible, multi-use facility that the entire community could enjoy. Some of the key design features include flexible plaza space designed to accommodate vendors, events, and bleacher seating; a stage with an informal amphitheater for awards ceremonies, music or movies in the park; and a perimeter walk with built-in seating.

One of the most significant elements of the new park is the inclusion of four iconic 25-foot tall metal and concrete tree sculptures, created by local artists, which express skate culture.
