Rehab & Additions 2012-Current
Carmel is a strong skateboarding community north of Indianapolis and a leader in Indiana Parks and Recreation. The skatepark sits off the Monon Trail, a major rail project that starts north of Downtown Indianapolis and continues north through the city of Westfield and then picks up again in Northern Indiana in Lake County. Carmel Skatepark was built by sidewalk contractors around nine years ago, and was experiencing a lot of wear and tear. After closing the park for 6 weeks in September/October 2012, we addressed the problem areas and extended three rails. The repairs consisted of the custom fabricating of two twenty foot long steel edging pieces to replace the degraded areas, replacing of caulking throughout park, patching holes of various sizes, and filling large cracks with epoxy. The original contractors failed to include three flat bars in the design. We corrected this error and extended all the rails making the park more skateable. From 2013-2016 we have added new features to the park and hope to continue working with Carmel to eventually replace the entire bowl area.
