Skate Park
Issaquah Skate Park

Overview
Reflecting a long-held community desire to offer skaters a better place to ride, we're developing a new skate park.

The 10,500-square-foot facility will be constructed at Tibbetts Valley 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 Issaquah Skate Park, constructed in 1997 near the Issaquah Community Center, no longer provides the best recreational experience possible for our skaters.

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 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 to develop a preliminary design for a 10,500-square-foot skate park at Tibbetts Valley Park.

In Phase 3, a new skate park will be constructed, starting in early 2017.

With support from the Arts Commission, artist Jake "Dkoy" Wagoner developed exciting public art for the new skate park.

Funding
Funding for the $525,000 project comes from the City's park mitigation and Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) funds, a King County Youth Sport Facilities Grant and community donations.

Working with our community, we raised $20,810 in donations for the skate park project.
