Robert Bell Skatepark
This park is a true testament to Spohn Ranch’s unique problem-solving approach. Prior to our involvement, the Village of Corrales had commissioned a skatepark design which was receiving bids of 150%+ of their desired construction budget. Working hand-in-hand with the local skateboard community, we value-engineered the park and delivered a new, well-balanced design that met the budget and that the skaters loved.
With sandy and expansive soil presenting construction challenges, we kept the skatepark design above-grade – incorporating a 5′ horseshoe bowl and several elevation changes. The strong balance of plaza and transition serves a wide range of styles and skill levels from throughout the Albuquerque area.
