Thompson Park – Chch
I was approached by Christchurch City council after they had heard about the success of Reefton park. They wanted to extend the existing old skatepark and get rid of the sketchy old wooden ramp. It is the oldest skatepark in Christchurch and has been there since the very early days in the Seventies. After consultation it was found that most of the local community wanted a bowl. So I designed and built this multi level bowl to go alongside the existing micro mini and street area. There is also some larger street ledges and rails to test out any street skater around, these all blend in to the existing tar seal park area giving some nice flow and hips to hit. The council had a small fixed budget so I stretched it as far as I could and ended up with the feature bowl going from 4ft right up to 10ft with vert and a loveseat.
