Plano Parks and Recreation proudly opened the city’s first outdoor skate park August 11 at 6701 Coit Rd.
Liz Del Turco, project manager for the skate park, said the Skate Park at Carpenter Park was built in response to requests from parents and children in Plano. The public asked; the city answered.
Located in the southeast corner of Carpenter Park, the skate park combines popular street-style skating and bowl skating features. Together, Newline Skate Parks, Dean Construction and SPA Skate Parks have designed and built one of the most extensive and unique skate parks in the Metroplex.
Designed to resemble the letter “P” from the official Plano logo when viewed from overhead, the Skate Park at Carpenter Park has one of the largest bowls in the area, as well as several ramps, rails, stair sets and ledges.
Skaters may use skateboards, scooters and in-line skates only. It is free to use and open to the public during normal park hours.Skate Park Info > [codepeople-post-map]
