About the Citywide Skatepark Plan
This Citywide Skatepark Plan identifies a network of safe, legal places throughout the city, for people of all ages, races and genders to enjoy. It also offers recommendations that can begin to change the way people think about and experience skateboarding in the City of Seattle.
The Task Force – Now the Skate Park Advisory Committee (SPAC)
Skateboarding is a popular sport across the country and its appeal continues to grow with the recognition of superstars like Tony Hawks and Shaun White. To keep up with one of the fastest growing sports in the nation, the Seattle City Council established a Skatepark Advisory Task Force in 2006 with the goal of creating skatepark plans for Seattle.
The Task Force was comprised of representatives from all quadrants of the city, bringing both skater and non-skater perspectives to this planning effort, as well as diverse backgrounds and professional expertise.
Citywide Meetings and Public Process
Seattle Parks created a citywide plan to help provide public facilities for participants in this popular sport. The plan provides a long-term vision for skatepark facilities.
The Public Process History June 2006 - February 2007 document provides information about the planning process for the Citywide Skatepark Plan.
