Levi’s DIY: Oakland De Fremery Skate Park

Posted on October 23rd, 2014

The De Fremery Skate Park, aka Town Park, in West Oakland is getting some exciting new additions. Keith K-Dub Williams, founder of Town Park, has teamed up with Levi Strauss and California Skateparks to design and build these new concrete skate features. Levi’s is working with members of the local community who have grown up in and around Town Park and throughout West Oakland to help build the skate park. The knowledgeable California Skateparks crew will the lead the construction process and provide guidance for the Levi’s crew and volunteers.

Below are some construction progress photos. The Levi’s crew and local volunteers have been doing an amazing job!

We are happy to announce we will be building the The Lynch Family Skate Park in Boston Massachusetts.

We are thrilled to invite you to the Lynch Family Skatepark Groundbreaking Ceremony! The groundbreaking will be held at  DCR’s  North  Point  Park  (on  the  Skatepark Site)  at 9:00 AM on Thursday, October 23rd.

The skate park site is located in East Cambridge beneath the ramps to the iconic Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, adjacent to the North Bank Bridge, a newly constructed pedestrian bridge connecting North Point Park to Paul Revere Park in Charlestown. The “wheel-friendly” park is designed to accommodate skateboarders, BMX riders, and inline skaters and will include seating and access around the skate plaza for spectators who wish to watch the athletes in action.  The skate park will have the capacity to support community clinics and events, as well as world-class competitions. In addition to being built on reclaimed industrial land, the skate park aims to maximize “green” elements throughout design and construction, including systems that promote the natural treatment of stormwater run-off, recycled and reclaimed building materials, native landscaping, and a construction-phase waste management and recycling planning.

Our amazing construction crew has been working hard on the San Luis Obispo Skate Park. Below you can see the great progress we’ve made. The wave is ready for shotcrete, our  CA metal fabricators are busy installing their features, the bowl is getting tiled and the flow section is nearly complete. This park is going to be INSANE!
