US CitySlicker Rachel: An Evening at Austin BMX & Skate Park

Even though Go Skateboarding Day has come and gone, Austin, Texas is still celebrating with the one year anniversary of its 30,000 square foot Austin BMX & Skate Park.

Project Coordinator Gary Gregson worked with local BMX riders and skateboarders to create a space for both the experienced and novice. Not only was it built using a bond approved by voters, but functional metal artwork was commissioned through the city’s Art in Public Places program.

No-Comply Skate Shop is around the corner and owner Elias Bingham estimates 200 or more people use the park daily.

I stopped by just before 10pm with my LC-A+ to capture some of the action.
