Alga Norte Community Skate Park

Creativity and design expertise helped recreate history in the birthplace of the world’s first skate park

Carlsbad, California

We created this skate park by wrapping it around a retention basin, giving it a flowing look and providing wonderful views. Its aesthetics are enhanced further with an urban plaza theme, integrating a color pallete to reflect the prevalent Spanish style architecture, and a transition arch inspired by the shape of Carlsbad’s historic mission.

Located in the heart of the action sport industry, the park required extensive community involvement and participation of several professional skaters during design charrettes. Responding to the comments received, we designed adequate ingress and egress to ADA compliant facilities, making the park pedestrian friendly and providing spectator views. We also included off-street parking and green technology/sustainable features.

Our services ranged from project inception through the grand opening. We provided the planning as well as the schematic, conceptual, and final design development. During public meetings, we used 3-D models to convey our concept.
