Kiwanis Park Skatepark Project
What is the project history?
The Valley Skate Association has been in existence since 1999 in an attempt to design and build a new skatepark in Lewiston. Under the direction of the Parks and Recreation department, the project is at the point that we are ready to move forward to design and construct a new facility. A skatepark selection committee was formed in April of 2010 to review the 9 design/build proposals that we received from around the United State and Canada. The Committee was made up of 7 individuals: the Parks and Recreation Assistant Director, the City’s Chief Building Inspector, a local architect, a local engineer, a skateboard advocate, bike shop owner and a member of the Parks and Recreation Commission. The committee met a total of 4 times before selecting the final 3 firms that all flew in to make presentations to the committee. Following that process which occurred on May 3rd, the committee selected Grindline Skateparks out of Seattle to lead the design and build phase of the project. Local partnering firms of Grindline include USKH and All-West Testing, both out of Lewiston.
