Los Alamos Skatepark

Location: Los Alamos, NM

Completed: 2009

MRWM and California Skateparks teamed up for this exciting design build skatepark at Mesa Public Library. MRWM was responsible for the site analysis and conceptual layout of the park. Careful consideration was place on retaining existing trees, working around utilities and maintaining pedestrian circulation to the library. MRWM also lead a public design charette and attended several County Council meetings. Although there was public support for the project, there were several community members with concerns about the location. MRWM provided the Council with detailed information regarding design features, anticipated noise levels, and the sport of skateboarding so they could make an informed decision. MRWM also worked closely with the Los Alamos Parks and Recreation Department to ensure the design met their criteria.
