Woodside urban skate spot
City: Silver Spring, Maryland
Size: 3,000 sq ft
Role: Skatepark Designer and Builder

A unique little skate spot in Silver Spring’s Woodside Park. With a handful of skateable elements, this skate spot has become an integral part of Montgomery County’s skatepark system. A diversity of shade-giving trees gives this space a peaceful ambiance, perfect for an afternoon skate session or just relaxing with friends.
Although not large enough to accommodate a city’s entire skateboarding population, skate spots like these create vital community gathering places and can be a valuable addition to the spectrum of recreational facilities.
