Skatepark
Overview
Reflecting a long-held community desire to offer skaters a better place to ride, we’re embarking on a process to develop a new skate park.

With our planned skate park, we want to provide the most fun — and safest — experience possible for our skaters, and include amenities for skaters of all skill levels.

The existing 5,600-square-foot skate park, constructed in 1997, no longer provides the best recreational experience possible for our skaters. In addition, the secluded location behind the Issaquah Community Center causes public safety concerns.

Timeline
Our project is divided into three main phases: site location, design and construction.

In Phase 1, we led a conversation about potential skate park locations. 

After listening to input from our community, our Citizens Advisory Committee and Park Board made a recommendation to the mayor to build a new skate park at Tibbetts Valley Park

In a unanimous decision May 19, 2014, the City Council approved Tibbetts Valley Park as the location for our new skate park.

In Phase 2, we worked with our community and Grindline Skateparks, Inc. to develop a preliminary design for the Tibbetts Valley Park location.

In Phase 3, a new skate park will be constructed.

Funding
In September 2013, the Issaquah City Council allocated $350,000 for the project.

Funding for a new skate park is comprised of $200,000 from the Park Mitigation Fund and $150,000 from the Real Estate Excise Tax Fund (REET).
