Design submitted for new skate park

July 22, 2014

Issaquah’s new skate park is moving closer to construction with Grindline Skateparks Inc. providing a near-final design.

After three public input meetings, the city-hired designer gave city officials its vision of what Issaquah’s skaters said they wanted in a new park. Grindline lead designer Micah Shapiro said their plan brought flow and a variety of elements to the 8,000-square-foot, triangular-shaped plot in Tibbetts Valley Park, across from the Issaquah Transit Center.

“We’ve kind of gotten it figured out what the public wants,” Shapiro said. “It’s really all about what they want in their skatepark.”

Grindline Skateparks Inc. Because of the high water table, the designer of the skate park could not include any deep bowl structures. This design could still change, depending on the budget for the park.
