After several public meetings and hearing from neighborhoods and community leaders, the St. Petersburg Regional Skatepark was approved by City Council in August 2015. The $1.25 million project broke ground in June 2017 for a 28,000 square foot regional skatepark housed in the Campbell Park neighborhood. The skatepark was designed and built Cutler Associates, Team Pain Skate Parks, Hunter Booth of Booth Design Group and Dan Vickstrom of Vickstrom Engineering.
The park has features for all levels, including a street course, a snake run, an intermediate and a deep bowl, which is one of the most exciting features. The 12-foot-deep bowl is the deepest skatepark bowl in Florida and is designed for advanced level skateboarders and BMX riders. But, the skatepark doesn’t just promote fun and new challenges for skateboarders and BMX riders. It also promotes physical fitness, exposes youth to new athletic opportunities and will bring competitions for amateur and professional skateboarders and BMX riders to the St. Pete community.
