The park covers 14,422 square feet, including a concrete footprint of 11,321 square feet. BMX bikes without pegs are allowed in the skatepark.
Designed to provide the highest level of enjoyment for skateboarders, the Stevens Point Skateboard Park was constructed with ready-mix concrete provided by County Materials Corporation, including all exterior flatwork and shotcrete for curved, ramped, and vertical surfaces. After researching other skateparks, the designer and Stevens Point park planners determined that concrete would provide the smoothest ride and most durable surface, making it easier for skaters to handle the obstacle courses. Also, the rigidity of concrete can rebound energy back to the skateboard's deck, which helps make trick maneuvers more enjoyable for the rider.
The park was designed to resemble a street plaza. Because concrete is a three-dimensional building product, the designer was able to replicate obstacles within it to look like typical street features, including stairs, walls, railings, planters and even benches. Concrete was also a necessary material for the design and construction of the boomerang shaped pool at the center of the skatepark.
