THE COMPANY

Grindline Skateparks provides a bridge by connecting local youth who have a passion for skateboarding with the city’s goal of providing a safe, durable park, which also enhances the community it will serve. Grindline produces the most innovative, original skatepark designs out there today - building custom recreational experiences for skateboarders and residents alike. Grindline is skater-owned and operated so as life-long skateboarders, Grindline can translate the needs of local skaters into a skatepark design that works for them now and into the future. Our reputation is based on the close connection we have with skateboarders as we always put the enjoyment of the skateboarding experience first. We have had the pleasure of planning, designing and constructing all types of skate terrain including street plazas, bowl complexes, and hybrid-parks that include both transitional and street features. Our parks range in size from the largest skatepark in North America all the way down to a single skate obstacle – and regardless of square footage, skaters are riding our parks from dawn to dusk.

For Skateboarders, By Skateboarders.
