Boasting over 6,000 square feet of modern plaza and transitional terrain, the Alvin Skatepark truly represents a site-tailored facility that enhances an already-popular City park. SPA/New Line/VDZ responded to the City’s vision of creating a safe, sanctioned skateboarding/wheeled sports venue that would integrate with an established passive green space, children’s play scape, performance area, and picnic shelter. This includes the implementation of ‘skateable’ seating/site furnishings, central ‘green’ area, and architectural detailing that references the colours and signage found in the park’s historic railway building. Now open, the park serves as one of the region’s most popular community recreation attractions.
Alvin skatepark is located in National Oak Park, 118 S Magnolia.
