Woodward Tahoe – NEW Sierra Skate Plaza

Woodward Tahoe – NEW Sierra Skate Plaza

Skatepark Design+ Build

Coming Summer 2016!

The main goal for our design of the new Sierra Skate Plaza at Woodward Tahoe was to create a space that fits into the natural environment and responds to the existing context, instead of bulldozing it out of the way. We want to leave as much of the existing boulders, trees, and other natural elements as possible and have the park take advantage of the setting by integrating these natural features. Additionally, the elements that we do add are going to reflect the natural beauty of Boreal Mountain at Lake Tahoe. We will have stamped concrete that simulates tree bark, a quarter-pipe that looks like a naturally occurring boulder, and ledges that appear to be logs sawed in half, among other things. While all of these elements will still be built out of concrete and protected by steel, ultimately we want to arrive at a truly unique finished park that feels like it is one with the mountain. Needless to say, we can’t wait to start building!
