    Building a Skate/bike Park

    Hey all, I was just wondering what would be inolved with building a bike/skate park. My brother has a large sum of indispensable income, and would like to invest in something realatively worthwhile. He initially suggested a skatepark, but neither of us know anything about the design or the layout of such. Can someone give details as to materials, dimensions, layouts and furthermore, price.

    Its not as easy as it looks. My cousin and I built one last year, and it took us months. Well worth the effort though

    Do you mean "disposable income"?

    I was talking to somebody from the local council, and he reckons that to build a decent sized concrete skate park would cost about 5 million. When I say decent I mean about 20x20 metres square.

    I guess it really depends on what you plan on making it out of.

    Yeah...have you tried going around your town getting people to sign a petition or something? Show this to some main person in your town...and they might even chip in some money also. I believe they think it will keep kids out of trouble, and sometimes they'd like to help. Just an idea...
