It’s been two years since Lancaster’s 14-year-old Bryce Buchholz was killed by a drunken driver while riding home on his beloved orange BMX bike with a friend. Now, his family and community’s dream to remember Bryce by creating a safe place for children to skateboard and do stunt biking is becoming reality.
The village’s Keysa Park in Lancaster, New York will home to the Bryce Buchholz Memorial BMX/Skate Park. We designed the 12,500 square foot bmx park after one of our previous designs from the Street League Skateboarding New Jersey Course.

We have begun construction on the new San Luis Obispo Skatepark. The new 15,500 square foot concrete park, designed by Wormhoudt Inc., will be replacing the old wood skate park located in the Santa Rosa Park. The project will also feature an outdoor amphitheater, a low impact fitness path, public art, and a streetscape plaza for spectator seating, farmers’ markets, craft fairs and other events. The park will also have a public art component that will consist of skate-able tree structures made of concrete and steel, along with artistic tiles and art stencils within the skate bowls.
