Skateparks require attention to operate at peak performance. Trash must be removed, debris blown or swept clear, and cosmetic concerns addressed. Considering that skateparks are often a Parks Department’s most popular facility, the maintenance demands on them are very low. Concrete skateparks are virtually indestructible and can bear thousands of hours of use without showing signs of wear.
Skateboarders are athletes that “train” for hours on end. The length of a session for the average core skateboarder is more than an hour a day, several days a week. With a majority of the local skateboarding activity concentrated at the skatepark, some maintenance will be required.
