Titusville, FL, May 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- If the countless tweets, facebook updates and blog posts from Central Florida’s skaters are any indication, Spohn Ranch’s latest design/build project in Titusville, Florida is officially a hit. As skaters from throughout the region flock to the new concrete wonderland, word is quickly spreading about the park’s innovative layout and use of unique features.
California-based Spohn Ranch completed two larger, destination-style parks in Gainesville and Daytona Beach last year. With Titusville’s park, they’ve continued the tradition of skateable landscapes with visually-striking architecture and an inviting aesthetic. At Marina Park, the waterfront views, colored concrete and open air feeling all come together to create a vibrant public space – arguably the most intriguing part of the new recreation complex.
The new park, Titusville’s first public skatepark, boasts roughly 8,000 square feet of skateable concrete terrain. An elevated plaza anchors the park’s center and is supported by curving pathways which allow riders to flow into either the mini-ramp or technical section of the park. An extravagantly large manual pad at the lower elevation gives the park a true street vibe and provides plenty of opportunity for connecting technical lines. For the passionate local touch, Spohn Ranch collaborated with Florida-based Misiano Construction to execute the build portion of this project
With skatepark construction wrapping up in early April, Brevard County Parks and Recreation will host the Marina Park Skatepark’s official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, May 23rd.
