An individual wrote me December 6th with the following message about the Tigard Skate Park.
I'd like to inform you a bit more about the park design and fundraising efforts for
the Tigard Skatepark. It is a 25,000 sq ft park with mostly street elements such as
the 4 different sets of stairs located strategically around it. There are also elements
for bowl/vert skaters like the . There are flat and round rails/bars/hand rails/coping/angled
iron in the park and many different types of banks and trannies. It is going to be insane.
I have included an attachment for the architectural design of the park. It was designed by
Purkiss-Rose specifically for us in Tigard. We are currently laying down the foundation to
have a movie premier in our town. It'll be put on by Trove Productions, a seattle based
movie proucer who is giving 100% of the profits to the task force for the skate park.
thank you for your interest. persons of all interests will be allowed: Skaters, Bladers,
and Bikers. Here is the park plan as PDF file
