Fall 2015 & 2016
In 2014, Indianapolis skaters formed a skatepark advocate organization and have successfully proposed an innovative plan to build new skate spots and dots that will be located in neighborhoods throughout the city. The Indy Skatepark renovation was the kick off project to start the design and build of this larger Indianapolis plan envisioned by the Indy Skatepark Advocates. The Indy Skatepark is the one of the oldest skateparks in the Midwest Region of America and the 20,000 sq ft park had been neglected for years. The 2014 additions included a new ledge, extensions, euro gap, radius curb, and banks. The entire park was painted with an IMA grant by artists Nathaniel Russel, Andrew Hutchinson and a crew of volunteers. The 2016 additions included a manual pad box at the entrance, bank to bank, a new hand rail and a roller to quarter pipe, and a deck quarter pipe with a steel curb.
