Through the initiative of Gavà’s skaters, a public competition was organized to improve the existing skatepark. It was the local skaters who voted the project delivered by DAW and California Skateparks Europe.

 

The project proposed the removal of existing elements, due to their poor condition, and the construction of new concrete elements that enhance the usability and durability of the facility. The project builds on the existing concrete slab with the construction of two concrete quarter-pipes at opposite sides of the slab, placing one of them off the slab, using the element itself to gain distance between these elements and the central funbox. In the areawhere the urban plan does not allow the construction of permanent elements, a ledge and rail are located.
