Los Alamos County Community Services Department (CSD) has begun the project to replace the modular elements for the White Rock Skate Park (99 Sherwood Blvd, White Rock). American Ramp Company (ARC), in partnership with CSD, is currently seeking the community’s input on the design and type of modular elements to install.  

The County Council approved the White Rock Skate Park improvement project as part of the Capital Improvement Project budget for 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and staffing and supply shortages, the project was delayed. ARC was selected by CSD in February 2023 to move forward with the improvements for the skate park beginning in December 2023.

ARC is widely known across the country for skate park design and construction and is extremely proud to have skaters as part of their design team. ARC is seeking resident feedback through an online survey, as well as at a public meet and greet with ARC, County staff, and professional skaters at the White Rock Skate Park on March 9 at noon. 

Parks Superintendent Wendy Parker shared, “With the help of an experienced skate park construction and design firm, such as ARC, the community can feel confident knowing their skate park will adequately serve their action sports athletes. Functional and well-balanced designs, combined with high-quality construction methods will produce a skate park for all ages and skating levels.”

Ryan Hicks, Design Coordinator for ARC said, “We look forward to the community feedback to help us design a skate park that will be used for years to come.” 

CSD, alongside ARC, looks forward to working with the Los Alamos County residents and community partners to bring this exciting project to fruition. The existing skate park was opened in 2000. The improvement project is scheduled to be completed by October 31, 2024, or earlier.
