Hood River Gets An Addition

Hood river

Hood River Oregon is starting another phase starting Oct 12th. A local firm of skaters have been hired to design and build a “Camcorder” style bowl that will spine into the main skate area. Projected finish time is going to vary due to winter weather conditions approaching the Columbia Gorge region. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive- but for now- check out this sweet design they are working on- some tweaking is going to occur. Finished bowl will be 3ft to 4ft to 5ft, with progressive big transistions are the goal. No Pool coping was discussed, but the older advanced skaters asked for the 5ft part to have something with Pool coping. In summary, the Hood River Parks and Recreation have received a $50,000 dollar grant to continue improving the skatepark. Local skaters have voiced their opinion and a skater owned design firm is being contracted to do the work. Stay tuned.

  1. Where are they putting that? I’m surprised they didn’t push for more street. Although that’s going to be a pretty mellow bowl. Hood River is going to be pretty diverse. Who is “a local firm?”

  2. Awesome. One of the best settings to skate in during the summer.

  3. The bowl will be built by local skaters/contractors working directly for Parks and Rec.
    More street is planned for the next phase (next year).
    The vert ramp was also given some love. The sheets were pulled off, refastened with new screw. Most importantly, the old pinner coping was replaced with some 2.5″

  4. Those skaters being Mark W and Graham. Both very talented skaters with a great eye.

  5. hey estes, how about hooking us up with the design you have on that lappy there – but here – maybe jpg?

  6. Once the city Engineer signs off on the design, I’ll post it.
    There’s still some tweaking that needs to be done to preserve the roots of the trees.
