Here's a version with coping and a bench, so you can sit down and think before you drop-in.

There's street there too. In fact, the flat bar's inspired by a pro skate spot (The rail @ 3:31). Shane only grinded about 4' of the rail, so I made the park rail about 4' long to save money. Point is, you only need 4' of flat bar to perform awesome grinds.
(3:31)


I appreciate the kind words and support. I'd be honored if my vision becomes a reality. I put a ton of time and energy into this skate park design to ensure that every detail is thought out. Note how the flat bar is inspired by a pro skate spot.

LOL... To be honest, I tried to design the worst skate park possible and that was what I came up with. It was harder than you'd expect to make a design this terrible.

Can you put coping on the flat bar so it does not get scratched and look messy.

That's such a good idea. Whenever the coping gets scratched, people can just replace the coping without having to replace the entire flat bar. I even put on extra layers of coping for extra measure and to create more work for people. Wouldn't want people going hungry because they can't find work... How many pieces of coping does the flat bar need to stay pristine and scratch-free?

What about if someone like round rails? Put a single round bar on top but off to the side so people can still skate the square one.

Extend the handrail closer to the ground so people can skate up it if they feel so inclined

You need to add more coping to the mega loop.

Have you considered using wood or empty milk cartons in your skatepark designs?
