Community Engagement / Public Consultation - New Line Skateparks provides comprehensive consultation services to facilitate community input in the design of skateparks and other progressive public spaces. As passionate skateboarders and avid park users ourselves, we know how important participation by youth and other members of the community will be to the long term success of each project. No matter what project size, we deliver a custom tailored program of hands-on, interactive design workshops and public presentations facilitated by principal members of our team. Outside of our scheduled meetings, youth and other stakeholders are encouraged to continue to submit written comments, sketches, pictures etc. through our specially developed custom web portal for immediate and ongoing feedback. Overall, we believe engaging the community in a meaningful way is the single most critical aspect of any skatepark design journey and a key factor to our team’s continued success.

Integrated Design - New Line Skateparks designs award winning municipal concrete skateparks and other wheeled sport environments that continually set the bar for international skatepark development. From day one, we have chosen to think outside the ‘concrete square’ by leading the industry in introducing a site and community-specific design approach, integrated art/sculptural installations, green/sustainable development initiatives, CPTED principles, innovative materials and aesthetic detailing, progressive lighting schemes, skateable donor recognition signage, and architecturally striking skatepark roof structures. We believe that every project and community has a unique ‘story’ that can be told through authentic and enduring skatepark architecture. To realize our unique designs, we take great pride in delivering photorealistic 3D facility modeling, animated project ‘fly-through’ experiences, and certified technical drawings to ensure complete project understanding and a thorough construction process for each park.
