Two consultants chosen to interview for skatepark design project
ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 17, 2012 — The Ann Arbor Skatepark is moving closer to becoming a reality. City of Ann Arbor Parks & Recreation Services, Friends of Ann Arbor Skatepark, Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation, and a Park Advisory Commission member reviewed six proposals from consultants in the United States and Canada to design a skatepark in Veterans Memorial Park, 2150 Jackson Ave.
The committee met on Monday, May 14 and chose two consultants to interview: Wormhoudt Inc. and Wally Holiday Skateparks. Both companies are based in California and each have over 30 years of experience designing and constructing skateparks. The firms have reputations among skateboarders as being two of the best designers in the industry.
Interviews are being scheduled, after which a recommendation will be made as to which firm will be awarded the design and construction oversight of the skatepark project. After the contract is awarded, public workshops will be held to obtain design feedback from the community. Construction is tentatively scheduled for spring/summer of 2013.
