Participate in designing new Rainier Beach Skateboard Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation, CHAMPS Resource and Service Center, and Parents for Skateparks encourage the Rainier Beach community to participate in design conversations for a new Rainier Beach Skate Park.  Please join us at Rainier Beach Community Center (multipurpose room) on Wednesday, July 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. to share your ideas, talk with the design team, enjoy local food, and participate in a tour of the future skatepark area. The goal of the meeting is to review the schematic plan developed using ideas from the community. This skateboard park and gathering area design comes from your ideas!

For the last four years, CHAMPS has been hosting events to discuss a new skateboard park in southeast Seattle that would attract youth and provide a safe gathering place. They are partnering with Parents for Skateparks and are excited to work with the community on the design. 

This project includes a feasibility study, conceptual 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-led project and construction is not currently funded. The design will naturally integrate skateboarding into the surrounding landscape and feature a mix of street and transition-style terrain, with elements for all age groups and ability levels. It will draw local users to the skatepark, and challenge both beginners and experienced users.

The new skatepark at Rainier Beach Playfield will be a great addition to the Rainier Beach Community Center, and local sporting activities.
