SeaSk8’s Gettin’ Closer

posted by on May 14 at 14:00 PM

At last week’s Seattle Center skatepark design meeting, designer VDZ showed off three possible designs for the long-delayed SeatSk8 replacement skatepark.

The designs still don’t include a bowl—a point of contention for some local skaters—but it looks like VDZ is doing what they can to make use of a less than optimal space.

If you haven’t made it to any of the design meetings, you can still give feedback on VDZ’s forum.

The final skatepark design will be revealed at the next Seask8 meeting on June 5th, starting at 6:30 in the Shaw Room.

Weighing in on skatepark designs? What am I, 16 years old and sipping forties?

If I were a skater, I'd probably favor the swirling design.

Needs a stage and twinkie ramp.

Why are we making do with a "less than optimal design"?

Especially since it was Bill Gates and Paul Allen that forced the relocations ...

oh, and I agree, option C is the best of the choices.

All of the look awesome. Option C looks like the most fun, not totally street oriented. Make them kids skate transition!
