Working closely with local skateboarding association, Subculture e.V., LNDSKT developed a master plan for a modern-day skate park in the Rheinaue recreational area in the town of Bonn in summer 2016. The main goal: Creating a new hot spot for skateboarding and youth culture in the German city.
As the foundation, we created an overall concept for the skate park that matched the designated location for the park on one hand, and the limited financial resources available on the other hand. Construction will commence in three stages between 2018 and 2020 to transform the former Children’s Traffic Safety Education Center into a state-of-the-art skate park.
Surrounded by lush greenery, the three park segments – street, bowl, and pump track –will cater to a diverse range of user groups and competence levels. Youth development training will be a special focus of the facility, so the project includes revitalization of adjacent building infrastructure to be used as youth center, rental shop, meet-up for skate classes, and more.
