  • SPRING 2018 UPDATE

    BBQ, hard work & good times. That's what most of the Winter consisted of for the Evergreen Skateparks crew down in the heart of Texas. Now with Spring finally creeping in up here in Big Sky Country, it seemed like a splendid time to give a run-down of the last few months. Last winter we wrapped up several unique projects across the country:

    STERLING HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN

    FORT MORGAN, COLORADO

    RIDE IT SCULPTURE PARK PHASE #3, DETROIT, MICHIGAN

    This Winter, our whole crew mobilized down to Taylor, Texas to work on the long-anticipated downtown skatepark for the great people of Project Loop. The results did not dissapoint! With warmer temperatures and a sizeable group, we were able to create a unique, finely tuned lunar landscape pump track complete with the Sarlacc Pit (Jabba the Hutt not included), some street features and endless options for flow & fun. *Disclaimer: the park is not yet open. Check Project Loop for updates.* 

    SKATEPARK CONSTRUCTION IN TAYLOR, TEXAS

    After completing the Taylor project, we headed north to get started on the new Douglas, Wyoming skatepark. Wind & weather doesn't stop us from making skate shapes.  

    While construction continued in Wyoming, another crew headed up to Livingston, Montana to break ground on the new skatepark at Sacagawea Park. A few years in the making, this upgrade from the existing wooden modular park is an exciting adventure for all involved. 

    This Summer you'll find us in the Rocky Mountains working on the new Frisco, Colorado skatepark. Coming in at over 20,000 square feet, it's a project we're all looking forward to. At the same time, a second Evergreen crew will be working on new projects around Montana as well as some secrets up our sleeve. Stay tuned! 

  • 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.
