Dahl Skatespot
Project Information

Location: 7700 25th Ave NE, Seattle WA 98115

Project Status

Thank you Seattle!
Over 50 skaters attended the community celebration for the official opening of the skatespot on June 24, 2010. Skate-Like-A-Girl offered free lessons and Snowboard Connection offered helmet fittings.

This community initiated project was awarded a Neighborhood Matching Grant for a skatespot in 2006. This grant was used to hire a consultant for the creation of a schematic design.

When skatepark funds became available Parks moved forward to implement the project. Parks put out a public Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in May 2008 and contracted with New Line/Van der Zalm consultants to complete the design of the site and provide construction administration. The previous designers, Skate Parkitecture, Landscape Architects was no longer in business. New Line / Van der Zalm advised Parks that the previous design had some safety issues. They were directed to keep the elements and given approval to provide more space between elements for safety, flow and capacity reasons.
