Minersville Area Skate Park

 

500 Line St, Minersville, PA 17954-1614

 

The Minersville skate park committee contacted Arment Concrete when their frustrations grew trying to raise funds for a full scale park at a cost of $100,000. We were able to work with their funding and build a small (2,200 sq ft) park for under $30,000. In recent years, we have returned to complete several additions; rails, ledges, bowl corner and embankments as additional funds have been raised. These additions continue to improve the park and hold interest for the users.

 

Original Estimate of Construction Cost: $25,000

Final Cost of Construction Cost: $25,000

           Bloomsburg Community Skate Park           12 E Fort McClure Blvd, Bloomsburg, PA 17815     In the aftermath of 2012 flooding of the Susquehanna River, the town of Bloomsburg was left without a skate park when the rising river waters swept their ramps down stream. The funding allowance was steering them in the direction of modular ramps but fear of a similar flood situation led them in the direction of concrete. Working with the committee, we were able to aid in the design of a first phase build that was intended to “have a little bit of something for everyone”.  We incorporated some different degree of ledge terrain along with a variety of transitions. This build is fundamental on its own, giving a hassle free, safe environment for users. We are currently working with the park committee on the design of phases 2 and three. Public design meetings are in the works and input from the current users will again be the basis for the park’s future.  Original Estimate of Construction Cost:  $35,000   Final Cost:  $35,000   Construction Start Date:  10/15/15

Ramp Evan

Upper Darby, PA

This 480 square foot mini ramp (3.5’ high, 16’ wide, 7’ transitions) looks like modern art in the wilderness. We stained the concrete to blend in with the natural surrounding and placed ceramic tile under the coping for skate board nostalgia sake. With limited fill options, the cantilever decks provide a mass alternative while giving users the needed vantage point.

Original estimate of construction cost: $7,000

Final Cost: $7,000

Denver Memorial Skate Park

801 Main Street, Denver PA 17517

A progressive project that started over 20 years ago, the current Denver skate park is a mix of fabricated ramps and concrete. As the original surface decayed, concrete was poured in its place with modern concrete skate terrain to match. As more funds were raised the process continued. Today we see the park ½ completed as fund raisers take place at the park which shows our progress and use of funds.

Original estimate of construction cost: $6,000 (phase one) $12,000 (phase two)

Final Cost: To be determined

Public design meetings were held at the local skate shop, support given by the local authorities and funds raised by the local government through tourism grants.  Built in the area of sport courts no longer useable, this 12,000 square foot skate park is spacious with general flow ability, mixing plaza and transitional style skating. The Steelton community support was paramount in showcasing the positive affect that a skate park can have in an urban environment.
