    Milestone Park Skatepark

     

    Driving through the small Midwest community of Sandwich, Illinois – population 7,000 – you would probably never imagine that the town’s central park would feature an architecturally-striking skatepark on par with some of nation’s most innovative skateboarding spaces.  For the skateboarders of Sandwich though, dreams came true when Spohn Ranch was selected as the design-build partner for the 8,000 square foot skatepark project.

    Never ones to settle for a typical approach, we designed a vibrant space that stands out from the rural background. An array of elevated areas combine with cantilevered sculptures to mimic the urban landscapes of nearby downtown Chicago.  A tasteful injection of Spanish Gold concrete tint gives the park a modern aesthetic, while sections of pool coping pay tribute to skateboarding’s formative years in Southern California.
