Project BackgroundThe SK8-Cary Skate Park is located within Robert V. Godbold Park at 2050 NW Maynard Road. The park consists of a lighted concrete slab with 12,000 square feet of wood ramps. Existing park features include a mini-ramp, rails to grind, recently added box jump and roller, and ledges to slide. All ramp skating surfaces are made with Skatelite Pro, which gives the Town the opportunity to rearrange the park features as opposed to an unchanging concrete park.
Supporting the skate park facility is a Pro shop with restrooms and a covered spectator area. The facility is staffed and can provide instruction from beginner to advanced level programs. Sk8-Cary is the only public skate/bike facility within the Town limits.
Since the Cary Sk8 Park's opening in 2002, few alterations or renovations have occurred. In October 2014, Mullis Design Group and national sub-consultant Spohn Ranch, Inc. were contracted by the Town to develop a Skate Park Master Plan. After completing several skate park analyses, conducting a public survey, holding two workshops, and coordinating meetings with parents and adjacent property owners, three design development options were created to complete the Cary Skate Park Master Plan. On Thursday, May 21, 2015, all three options were presented to Town Council and Option C was accepted. Funding has not been approved at this time for this option.
