Lea mckeighan action sports park
City: Lee’s Summit, Missouri
Size: 10,000 sq. ft.
Role: Skatepark Designer and Builder
Year Built: 2009
Co-designed with X-Games Gold Medalist and BMX legend Dennis McCoy, the Lea McKeighan Action Sports Park is a transition wonderland perfect for flowing lines and big airs. For this project, we engaged in a collaborative planning process that brought together bikers and skaters to create a multi-use park. During the process, we had multiple stakeholders with different ideas, many of whom were less than willing to compromise on their vision for the park. In the end, we arrived at a plan that made both sides happy and kept the project moving forward.
The final skatepark is a well-rounded facility suited for all styles of skateboarding and BMX bike riding. Skaters get creative on the hubba ledges and benches, will BMXers race through the bowl and blast huge airs out of the 9’ quarter-pipes.
