Skatepark

Spring Skatepark is in the outskirts of Houston, Texas, at the Kuykendahl and Rankin Rd intersection. It's the largest public park that's exclusively dedicated to skateboarding in North America and has 7.000 square metres, also making it one of the largest in the world. Grindline Skatepark began carrying out the construction on the 1st February 2012 and it was later inaurgurated on the 14th August 2014. The skatepark project is immersed in the Spring Recreational Area, a large green zone in Greenspoint which also has facilities for children with special needs (Dylan Park).

You can find many different obstacles in such a large, modern park like this one, but the main highlight is the bowl which is shaped like the state of Texas and its full pipe, a snake run called the Lazy River, the pentagonal pyramid that can be considered as the centre of the skatepark, and the sets of rail-hubbas-stairs for various levels which are scattered all over. 

The purpose of the skatepark is to hold exhibitions and high level competitions, as well as serving as a compliment to the Lee and Joe Jamil Skate Park in the city centre and, of course, for the residents of the local neighbourhood and Houston.

BMXs aren't permitted in this park, it's exclusively for skateboarders. June is the month when most rainfall is recorded in Houston, the least being in March and February.
