The Tinnell Memorial Sports Park is Arizona’s largest skate park at 40,000 square feet. The sports park is dedicated to the sacrifice made by fallen soldier and bmx rider Patrick Tinnell, along with Colin Sasseen who lost his life skating in his front yard. In honor of Patrick we built a custom cradle in the shape of his army helmet and for Colin we did a large stained concrete “C” at the bottom of the stair set. The street course design is inspired by Street League Skateboarding’s “skate plaza-style” course skated by professional skateboarders at the 2013 X Games at Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil. The upper deck of the park has a backyard bowl, a competition flow course and wall ride around a palm tree. The course also features a skate-able pathway with a kicker gap. Shade structures were also incorporated for spectators and skaters to catch a break from the Arizona sun. This skate oasis has something for every level of skater, not to mention one of the most beautiful views of any skate park in the world!
The Stoner Skate Plaza in Los Angeles, CA is one of the latest projects from California Skateparks. California Skateparks worked with the local community and local skaters to come up with this unique design. The main inspiring feature in the Plaza is the letter S for Stoner, which is shown off by the red line that flows from one side of the Plaza to the other. Many of the street features in the Plaza are features taken from previous skate spots that are no longer around or accessible, making this spark extremely special to the local skaters and community.

The project boasts a 40,000 square foot VANS “OFF THE WALL” skate park complete with lights, snack bar, bathrooms, lockers, and parking lot, in addition to a brand new Jacks Garage store on the premises. It is nothing short of a skateboard utopia that promises to be the premier skate park destination for years to come. The skate park itself offers some of every imaginable type of terrain, but is generally defined by an upper transition / flow / bowl area and a lower street/ plaza / park area, which are tied together by the well-known and iconic Vans checkerboard paving pattern found throughout the entire park. The upper transition portion of the park measures around 17,500 square feet, consisting of hybrid backyard bowl / flow bowl combination as well as a full sized competition clover bowl adorned with Golden State Pool Coping and custom tile, both of which were designed and influenced by legendary VANS rider Christian Hosoi as well as VANS team and staff members in collaboration with Joe Ciaglia of California Skateparks.

California Skateparks, Rob Dyrdek, and MTV Partnered to Design and Build the Fantasy Factory for Rob’s new MTV show
This skatepark we easily one of our most uniquely challenging projects to date, for a variety of reasons. The site for the park is situated in a long, skinny, open-air atrium space nestled in the middle of The Lionshead Parking Structure. The space is only 25 feet wide, but more than 230’ long, and in addition to the tight space, there are massive parking garage footings to avoid, a steep grade change running the entire length of the site, and even and open airflow stipulation limiting the amount additional vertical surface area obstructions all the way down to the percentage of air blocked by the mesh fencing that surrounds the park and prevents boards from flying into the parking areas. But, as is often the case, constraints can lead to opportunities and inspire new solutions. The Vail Skatepark takes advantage of every opportunity by moving up, down, and around existing footings and walls, creating unique skate elements within the park. Those features, along with all the other elements in the park came as a result of a collaboration with the local skateboard community. The Town of Vail also commissioned an artist to collaborate on the project that is going to do four different art installation pieces. The park also feature lights for night skating.
