Investing in the future
Gersthofen Skate Park
Skateboarding, BMX and scooters have become an integral part of society and represent a shift to modern sporting behavior. A few years ago, skating was still considered a niche sport or just a hobby for rebellious teens. In the meantime, the number of new users in the field of roller sports has been constantly increasing for years. A development that is due to the recognition of “Skateboarding” as an Olympic discipline, but also due to the provision of appropriate sports facilities.
In Gersthofen, modern sporting behavior with a trend towards individual sport should be promoted in a targeted manner using appropriate infrastructure. The new skate park appeals to a broad target group, can be used by a wide variety of user groups and is also intended to function as a social meeting point.
The company Bowl Construction AG, owned by Erwin Rechsteiner from Switzerland, was responsible for the planning and design and has over 20 years of experience.
When planning, great importance was attached to an integrated design of the individual elements. As a result, the facility by Schneestern literally appears to be “made of one piece” and meets the requirements of the sport.
That is why indoor and outdoor skateparks are always meeting places where social interactions take place and people of different age groups and social classes have fun together. Many communities are interested in creating opportunities for their children and teenagers to promote togetherness. Thus, the skatepark can be seen as both a meaningful and contemporary investment in the future of society.
Skateparks are just one of several open space design and movement promotion options offered by Schneestern. Visit us at the International Trade Fair for Amenity Areas, Sports and Movement Facilities in Cologne (FSB, Hall 7.1 Stall 024) from 5th to 8th November, and discover the possibilities of action sport infrastructures with us.
We did this.
