Site Description, Pictures
Scalzi Park is the largest recreational area within the Stamford city limits. It features tennis, basketball, volleyball courts, and baseball and softball fields, running and hiking trails as well as a bocce ball arena. It also houses Cubeta Stadium, which is home to the Stamford American Legion baseball squad. City staff members have been working on the Scalzi Skate park project since fall 2004. Skateboarders and inline skaters attended several design meetings between December 2004 and January 2006, and ultimately chose a cement skate park featuring bowls. The City hired Grindline Skate parks in fall 2006. Thanks to the fact that many skaters and their parents showed up to public meetings this spring, the contract with Grindline was approved by the Board of Representatives on March 5, 2007. Grindline conducted back-to-back design meetings with skaters on March 7 & 8, 2007.
The design posted here is the work of Micah Shapiro, Lead Designer for Grindline. During our last meeting, Micah had not quite finished working out the street section. As you can see, he added some wall ride and Jersey-barrier-type features. In general, he incorporated as many of the features and suggestions as he could from the skaters who attended the March meetings. The design is posted for your interest and admiration - the opportunity to comment and critique is over. Enjoy!
