Sterling Heights, Michigan Skatepark

  • Summer 2017..... Best yet?!

    Well summer is upon us and 2017 is shaping up (no pun intended) to be our biggest and best yet. Late June we finished construction on our project in Stockholm, Sweden- a unique addition to the surprising plethora of skateparks in Sweden.

    Designing & building skateparks in other countries can be complicated but at the end of the day it's pretty cool to think that there are Scandinavian people in another corner of the world enjoying an Evergreen park. Photos by Richie Conklin.

    LEWISTOWN, MONTANA

    Back in the states we've been working hard in Lewistown, Montana. The Lewistown Skatepark is a funding collaboration between Montana Pool Service, The Montana Skatepark Association and the local non-profit Make It Happen Foundation. Lewistown is a nice little town smack dab in the middle of Montana. The park features a fun lunar landscape section, a mirrored Treasure Bowl replica, and a street section. Some of the Evergreen higher ups (who will remain nameless) think this skatepark maybe our best yet. Construction should be completed late July.

    STERLING HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN

    While one crew wraps up construction in Lewistown we have another project starting in Sterling Heights, Michigan as of this week. This will be our largest design/build project to date and we'll be working on it for most of the rest of 2017. This will be our 5th skatepark in Michigan and Sterling Heights is just a short drive (and the next town over) from the skatepark we built in Clawson, Michigan. We're proud to say that the Michigan skate scene just keeps getting better and better.

    WATERTOWN, SOUTH DAKOTA

    In August another crew will break ground on the Watertown, South Dakota skatepark.

    • RIDE IT SCULPTURE PARK PHASE 3- DETROIT, MICHIGAN
    • TAYLOR, TEXAS

  • SPRING 2017 Update

    It's been awhile since we posted to our newsletter so we'll start where we left off. At the end of November 2016 we finished the Rockridge Skatepark in Bend, Oregon. This lunar landscape skatepark comes in at right about 11,000 square feet & should be open to the public when the rest of the Rockridge park construction is completed this summer of 2017. This is by far one of our favorite skateparks that we've designed & built and it will be a unique & fun addition to the Oregon skatepark scene.

    After completing the Rockridge skatepark we built a new quarter pipe at the Beaverton, Oregon skatepark:

     At the beginning of this year we were lucky to land a project in warm, sunny Texas. In February we began construction on the Johnson City, Texas skatepark which is not too far from Austin & just a short drive from the park we completed in 2015 in Fredericksburg, Texas. The Johnson City park is one of our favorite small skateparks we've done. It has a great flowy area with a long skateable path with ledges & manual pads.

    After Johnson City a small crew did some maintenance & new pool coping to the Grindline Skateparks designed & built West Linn, Oregon skatepark. Sometimes old concrete skateparks just need a little TLC.

    Mid-April we broke ground in Darby, Montana. The town of Darby already had a sad little existing park that was basically just a slab of concrete with a bank so we are sprucing that up to make it more FUNctional with some new street obstacles as well as adding another 4,300 square feet of concree skatepark. This surprise skatepark is being funded by the Montana Skatepark Association as well as Montana Pool Service- Jeff Aments skatepark charity. This will be our second skatepark in the Bitterroot Valley- a place Evergreen Skateparks is proud to call home now as we have our second office up the road in Stevensville, Montana where we built a park in 2015. The Darby Skatepark should be finished & ready for shredding in a couple weeks. Here's some shots of our progress so far:

    Along with the Darby, Montana project we have one of our crews getting started on a much awaited park in Stockholm, Sweden. This is our first park in Sweden and will hopefully be finished before their midsummer holiday in June.

    On the horizon for this summer we will be building another park or two in Montana. We'll also be back in Michigan to build phase 3 of Ride It Sculpture Park in Detroit as well as a brand new park just outside of Detroit in Sterling Heights. We are very excited about the Sterling Heights skatepark as it will be one of our largest design/build projects yet!

    Thanks again to everyone who helps make these projects a reality. Evergreen Skateparks is honored to get to do what we do.
