Front Skate Park

This project is now complete. Visit the Front Park website for current information.

Project Overview

The city of Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation has been approved for funds to renovate Front Skate Park, located at 485 W. Stinson Street (Between Stinson and Front Ave.). The Front Skate Park project is intended to provide the community with a much needed upgrade to the existing facility. The new skate park will incorporate selected components from the existing skate park and provide additional features that serve a wider range of skill levels. Additional work on this site may include path/access connections, fencing, slab topping, landscaping, and public art.

Project Updates

With all the rain we had this spring, we encountered some drainage issues on and around the existing slab causing us to modify the layout that had been presented at our third community meeting. Although the new layout is smaller in area, it should feel larger and more open than the previous design, allowing for more space between each element. We eliminated the center planter and added longer ledges and a larger transition/quarter pipe, while incorporating the majority of the other features (stairs, ramps, and rails) from the previous design. You can view the new design by clicking on the links below. New Renderings: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 We are still planning on starting construction this fall; however, with the unpredictable weather this time of the year, completion of the project may extend into the spring.
