The 15,000-square-foot skate park features a concrete kidney bowl, manual pads, quarter pipes, radius wedge, rainbow grind rail, grind ledge, slappy curb and pole.

Featuring concrete ramps and bowls, and rails, the new Rockville Skate Park is officially open for community use.

In addition to the concrete design, the new 15,000-square-foot concrete skate park located in the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center outdoor pool parking lot, at 355 Martins Lane, features an entrance building with a family/gender-neutral restroom, lighting, landscaping, parking, a stormwater management facility and access road improvements.

The new venue replaces the old wood and steel park, which opened in 2001. The old park had deteriorated after close to two decades in operation and was demolished.

Spohn Ranch, Inc. of Los Angeles, California, designed and built the new park after the city gathered input on the design from the local skating community. Spohn Ranch has also designed and built skate parks in Prince George’s and Howard counties in Maryland; Fairfax County, Virginia; Ocean City, New Jersey; West Virginia; California; and other areas of the U.S.
