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.
