Foot Deep Bowl
The North Houston Skate Park is the largest skate park in North America and the second largest in the world. The 78,000 SF competition-scale skate park is located in North Houston near Spring. The skate park features a Texas-shaped bowl with a 20-foot full pipe, a 12’ foot vertical ramp, a 10-foot-deep bowl, and a “snake run” pathway.
Located adjacent to the skate park is Dylan’s park, which was designed specifically to meet the needs of children who are sight and hearing impaired, autistic, or wheelchair bound. The park also includes walking trails and community center and features beautiful landscaping, public art, and walkways. The park was created in memory of Dylan Newman, a child abuse victim who passed away in 2009.
Jones|Carter provided program management on this project, serving as the owner’s representative. The team coordinated with several consultants and contractors to integrate the design and operational goals of the project. The Jones|Carter team took into consideration the communities’ needs, including landscaping, installation of public art components, and construction of the park’s welcome facility. Additionally, we worked closely with the appointed committee of skaters who served in an advisory capacity.
