Vallejo’s new 17,000 square foot Skateboard/BMX Park opened at Wardlaw Park in April, 2006 and features a hybrid design with a multi-lobed concrete bowl and a slab area for modular equipment. Five public meetings were held over the two-year design period, inviting skaters and BMX bicycle riders to take part in the planning process. The results produced unique design solutions. While many other skate parks typically feature either concrete bowl construction, or modular equipment on a slab, Vallejo’s park brings together the best of both worlds. Its innovative, hybrid design includes both the concrete bowl and modular equipment in separately fenced areas with a 20-foot wide gate in-between. The gate feature allows these areas to be combined for special events and exhibitions. The park also features areas for beginners and intermediate users to minimize user conflicts.
