About 10,000 square feet in size, the skate area is located on the southern edge of Port Aransas Community Park, off Ross Avenue, across the parking lot from the Community Pool and just the other side of walkway near the in-line skate rink.

The $287,000 facility was built by Wally Hollyday Design, a Southern California firm. The head of the firm, Wally Hollyday, doesn?t always personally get involved in construction of the skate parks he designs, but he did in the case of the one that he designed for Port Aransas.

The skate area features two connected concrete bowls about four and a half feet deep and a separate bowl that?s seven to eight feet deep. Also in place is a street course that includes hubbas, banks, stairs and other amenities.

The skate park was funded by $134,000 from the Regional Development Corporation (RDC), $130,000 from the city?s Facility Fund and $23,000 from city park dedication fees.

Information above was adapted from a South Jetty article by Dan Parker on March 11, 2010.

The design included tons of fill dirt piled high enough to avoid problems with Mustang Island?s notoriously high water table.

Construction was the culmination of many months of city planning that included consultation with young skaters around town.

The skate area?s hours are from dawn to dusk, same as the rest of Port Aransas Community Park.
