Excellence In Design – Nipomo Skatepark

A celebration is in order as Nipomo Skatepark in the City of San Luis Obispo has been awarded the 2023 Award of Excellence, Excellence in Design | Park Planning, Specialty Class 2 from the California Park and Recreation Society (CPRS).   

“This award recognizes excellence in design of completed park facilities intended for public use. The project may be either new construction or a rehabilitation project that demonstrates high standards of planning, design, community involvement, operation and maintenance, quality of aesthetics, usability, accessibility, and versatility.” 

Boasting 20,000 sqft. of diverse terrain, Nipomo Skatepark has been incredibly well received by the local action-sport / skate community and has users flocking to it from across the region. The recognition by CPRS validates the process of community consultation, planning and design philosophy behind this highly integrated and dynamic low-barrier facility. It is a prime example of a skatepark built by the community for the community and we could not be more thrilled for their award recognition. 

Congratulations to the multidisciplinary team involved in this project including our partners at Stantec Engineering.
