Skateparks and Skateboard Parks of the Future – Low-Tech Changes

A study has just been completed by an online think tank, which seems to indicate that Skateboard Parks are changing and still evolving. There will be many high-tech changes and uses of technologies at these facilities, but there will be low-tech changes too.

Significant changes also on the low-tech side of skateboard parks and Hover Board Parks of the future must be considered as well. For instance they will double as rain-water collection areas, where the water will run off thru simple filtration systems to be used for cleaning, farming and other important uses.

In fact these concepts are already emerging as Architects and AIAs are considering the issues with challenges in future water supply. Water shortages in urban areas and growing suburbs as populations increase will be over-taxed to the breaking point. The Skateboard and Hover Board Parks offer a chance to collect rain-water.

Skaters for Public Skateparks (SPS), which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that specializes in promoting skateparks in the United States and abroad stated;

If your city doesn’t have a skatepark, then your city is a skatepark.

Their point is that if you do not want skateboarders around town in shopping centers, government properties or in front of businesses then you need a skatepark, because if a city chooses not to address the issue, they have already made a choice. Their group is an advocate for safety and free access to skateparks for all skateboarders;

Skateboarding is Not a Crime!

In the future we can expect more traveling skateboard parks perhaps the size of two tennis courts that will be delivered to parking lots of retail centers to promote the video games, hover boards, accessories and high-tech Virtual Reality digital equipment for the living room of the future.These “Insta-Skate Parks” will come on two or three 18-wheelers and fold out and pop-up and be ready within hours for 10s of thousands of spectators and 100s of local hover boarders to compete and watch Pro-Exhibitions.

Flexible skateboard ramps at skate parks may also one day power up the lights for night skating by generating energy as the skateboarder puts energy into the ramp. Low wattage bright lights will then be directed down onto the skatepark and shine bright without taking a huge chunk out of the City’s electrical bills. The Skateboard Parks will continue to evolve well into the year 2020.
