Ketchikan Skatepark and Sisters Skatepark updates coming soon...
The Shane Howard White Skateboard Park
The Ketchikan Skateboard park was another AMAZING project. Funded mainly by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough and The White Family along with a Tony Hawk Grant and lots of local fundraising. I can't say enough about this unique community to do it justice but TRULY, building this park and having the opportunity to be a part of the community was an experience of a lifetime. Local involvement and support was incredible. Being there, you really feel how much everyone wants to help provide fun activity options for the children. They're on an island. So it was important to provide a creative park that was inviting for beginners yet challenging as the skateboarding abilities progressed. We can't give enough THANK YOU's to all the people that helped out with the project.

The US Coast Guard was SO kind and supportive to make a PRICELESS Donation. Not all donations were able to be integrated into Phase I but are safely stored away and waiting to be used in the next Phase! Thank You to Paul Hamilton of P and T Construction for hauling!

The Sisters, OR Skatepark was an AMAZING project. We were really excited and privileged to be able to be involved in such a phenomenal project. Spearheaded by Mr. Daniel O'Neill, a teacher at Sisters High School and Skateboarder, along with Sisters High Students and Sisters Park and Recreation District. An incredible amount of local community and business support and countless volunteer hours from local Skateboarders (Sisters, Bend, Redmond and all over). Excavation was donated by Robinson and Owen Construction of Sisters, OR.

Liquid Stone Designs, LLC focuses on the creation of fun and highly functional skateboarding facilities that encourage a family atmosphere. We've found that when you have a skate park that's fun and challenging for skaters of all skill levels it provides not only a safe place for kids to skate but also encourages involvement from parents. Our goal is to create skate parks where beginners can excel at their own pace while also learning from more advanced skaters. Generally this allows the older skaters to mentor the younger skaters in skill, etiquette and taking pride in their local park. Building a facility that's challenging is important because it allows growth and improvement of not only the beginning skateboarders but advanced skaters as well. Skateboarders like to travel to check out new skate parks and if there is a reason for them to return, they will, bringing revenue to the local community by staying in local motels or campgrounds, eating in local restaurants and shopping in local stores.
Ultimately, we do this for the kids and so we focus on building facilities that they can continuously grow with, not grow out of. Let's help keep our youth active. :o)
