Current Status

Project Complete
The SEPA for Woodland Skatepark was contested and the project was delayed. The Hearing Examiner issued her decision on Nov. 16, 2006. She affirmed Parks' Determination of Non-Significance and did not find any errors. This decision was appealed a second time and another hearing was scheduled for May 21, 2007. Parks' Determination of Non-Significance was upheld once again.

Notice to Proceed was issued for Sept. 20. The project will progress until complete in early 2008.

For more information, see the press release.

Project Description

Budget: $850,000
for planning, design and construction of all park improvements. Parks also received an IAC grant for $300,000 which will be utilized for construction costs.
Construction begins: Fall 2007
Project complete: Spring 2008

This project will develop an approximately 17,000 sq. foot skateboard park in Lower Woodland Park, in a location at the western end of the space between Soccer Field #2 and the cloverleaf ball diamonds.
Also, a maintenance road will be located between the woods, and the skate area. The skate area will contain bowls and street skating and challenge skateboarders of all skill levels.
