Excellent and well thought out plans
The Pawhuska Chamber of Commerce is an avid supporter of the Pawhuska Skate Park and is a member of the "Make It Happen In Pawhuska" Skatepark Committee. Greg Mize of Native Skateparks, LLC worked closely with the Chamber, the Committee and funding sources by providing outstanding plans, specifications and funding options for a cost effective, sophisticated concrete flow bowl skate park with a much longer lifespan, as opposed to a three component modular one that won't last as long and is high maintenance. He also provided a package of data citing the merits of skating and has been instrumental in helping the "Make it Happen in Pawhuska" committee secure significant funding. Due to the excellent and well thought out plans, we are the elated recipients of a prestigious Tony Hawk Foundation Grant in the amount of $25,000.

Consistent job site management
This past spring members of the eight person committee toured concrete skateboard sites in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Pawhuska, New Braunfels, Texas and Joplin, Missouri. Just this past month the group solicited a Request For Qualifications from a dozen skatepark designer/contractors and received six qualified responses. Following a series of evaluations and in-person interviews, Native Skateparks was chosen as the contractor of choice for the $125K privately funded Sand Springs Park Friends project. While all of the firms were deemed capable to complete this project, most concepts for the Sand Springs skatepark ranged in size from 4,000 to 5,000 square feet. Native Skateparks submitted a concept reflecting a substantially larger skatepark...Finally, Native Skateparks will take the lead on all aspects of the parks construction - while other firms may have relied on various levels of out-sourced help - thus ensuring consistent job site management.

Created at the Smithsonian
Native Skateparks was invited to attend and help construct a half-pipe that was skated in a series of demonstrations at the National Museum of the American Indian during the "Ramp It Up" Event. The ramp was erected improbable enough, in the direct center of the pristine Potomac Atrium. This museum is dedicated to advancing knowledge and understanding of the life, languages, literature, history and arts of all tribes. The "Ramp It Up" Event showcased Skateboard Culture in Native America.
Tony Hawk Foundation Grant Recipient The skate park off Broadway in Poteau, OK is approx. 11,000 square feet. It was designed to host a super fun and fast intermediate style bowl and offers some distinctive street features that should allow for some technical options while still having a good overall flow. This park is designed and built by Native Skateparks and was a 2011 grant recipient from the great folks at the Tony Hawk Foundation. Our Crew worked through record heat to bring this little gem to south eastern Oklahoma in 65 days.
Native Skateparks Remodels Owasso Skatepark
Owasso, OK gave us the opportunity to renovate the area where they had a pre-fab ramp park. Check out the pictures to see what we created from what was a flat slab of concrete. As pre-fab parks begin to phase out due to all their known issues, cities are looking to renovate these facilities with a more creative and sound approach. Custom concrete skateparks are far more functional and stimulating to the users and require no regular maintenance.
Indoor concrete bowl and street course.
On the Rock Ministries in Bartlesville Oklahoma has a great history of supporting young skateboarders. They are one of longest running indoor skateparks in the state of Oklahoma. Native Skateparks was hired to design and build the new skatepark expansion. The new addition includes an all new super fun and fast indoor concrete bowl with spine and mini bowl. The street course is built with both wood and concrete.
