history
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the skate story
You see them everywhere - flying through the parking lot, down the sidewalk, and up the middle of the street. For the hundreds of Asheville skaters, every inch of cement has been their playground.

For many years, a local ordinance banned skateboards from the streets and sidewalks of downtown Asheville as a means to protect the skaters, pedestrians, and prevent damage to streets, curbs, sidewalks, walls, benches, steps, railings, etc. Yet the skaters did not have anywhere to go to enjoy their chosen sport.


In May 1997, a public meeting brought together over 150 skaters, parents, downtown residents and merchants, law enforcement, and Asheville Parks and Recreation to begin a dialogue on skateboard interest and needs in Asheville. As a result, a Skateboard Task Force was created to find solutions. After much research and planning, a temporary location was designated on the top level of the Civic Center parking deck in downtown Asheville.

Thanks to a partnership with Food Lion, the state-of-the-art Food Lion SkatePark became a reality this year. At long last, skateboarders are celebrating as their long awaited dream of a new skatepark has become a reality.

The conceptual plan was designed by Parks and Recreation staff with input from the skateboard community. The final design and construction was accomplished by a professional interdisciplinary team of architect, landscape architect, and skateboard designers from Team Pain, a Tim Payne Corporation.
