Is your town getting a skatepark built? Well here are the companies we feel over here at Broken that should be on your list. If it is’nt mentioned here, I would think twice before you get some American Ramp Company or purkiss rose disaster in your town.

1. Grindline / Dreamland (Tied for First) – Grindline and Dreamland are both creators of epic skateparks world wide. They both use the maximum amount of space and create organic and amazing concrete wastelands to skate away the day on. Big stuff, small stuff, these 2 companies cover it all. Just click the link on there name to check out all the projects they have done. Lincoln city skatepark is one fine example of a Dreamland masterpiece. Orcas Island is a grindline beauty.


2. Team Pain – Team Pains latest creation in Arvada, Colorado is enough explanation for this second place choice. Very close second, could easily be tied for 1st too.

 

 

3. California Skateparks – Quality skatepark builder with some of the best concrete work around. Their parks are built to last.

 

 

 

4. Evergreen Skateparks – Windells Skatecamp, check it out.

6. San Pedro and Washington Street DIY builders – No need for an explanation

7. Poolish Pride Construction Lincoln Nass builds sick stuff with tight transitions that are perfect.
8. Placed to Ride tied with Artisan Skateparks – Our initial list left out Artisan and they are definitely a quality east coast builder that is worth mentioning. Placed to Ride has a few rad parks under their belt too and both are worth a look.

Parents Tory DelFavero and Emily Martin contended that the larger skatepark would be safer for younger children.

DelFavero has three sons, ages 8, 6 and 3, who all skateboard at different levels.

“With the larger size, there’s room for kids who know how to skateboard and for kids to learn,” explained Terry Campion, who is sponsoring a skatepark fundraiser Saturday at his shop, Santa Cruz Boardroom, on 41st Avenue.
