Ruston skaters have gone beyond the typical advocate activities and have presented us with a fully rendered design that represents all the elements they want to see in their new skatepark. If you haven’t been there, it is a great town in the northwest section of the state in Lincoln Parish. The site is a closed public swimming pool that was a WPA project- the Parks Director said that the pool walls are 4-7 feet thick of concrete. We will also be working with the Louisiana Tech Art Department on the design to incorporate decorative steel work and other design elements in the park.
Design will be complete by March and the timeline for building looks to be in the fall of 2018!
