The original skatepark was organized and built by Mark Butler and contributing community members. It was designed and contracted by a group from Arizona. Organizing started in the late 90’s but the original designs were put to a halt when the proposed skatepark had to be relocated to a different area on the Mesa Park property than originally planned . The original designer backed out and the organizing and planning was left alone to Mark. Mark did an amazing job in organizing and working for years to finally get a park built and finished by 2006.
The park that was built is a great start to a good skatepark, but it was simply left incomplete. The features on the park are too big to start out on for beginners and are only approachable to highly skilled or even professional skaters.
Our vision is a park where younger and beginner skaters can start at the bottom of the learning curve and work their way over time to progress in the park into the bigger already existing features.
Mark had original visions of a bowl to complete the half pipe area and a more finished flow to the park, but simply didn’t have the resources or funds to create that.
What we are fundraising for is an effort to make Mark's and the rest of the local skating community's visions come to reality.
We want this to be a community fueled process, including community volunteer work days where people can come and be a part of a positive experience. Together we can work and build relationships with fellow community members while at the same time creating a place where kids and adults alike can come and have a great time skating and progressing in the park.
No donation is to big nor to small! Thank you for contributing to the Bolinas Community Skatepark Fund!
Thanks so much,
