Proposed project: skate ramp improvements

Part of the Neighborhood Park Plan series of posts.

One of the community priorities for Patterson Park identified in the 2016 survey conducted by FoPP was improvements to the skate ramp. The ramp was designed and built by the Austin Public Skatepark Action Committee and Lonestar Skateparks in 2006. It is a popular park feature, and after 11 years of heavy use it is in need of some repairs. It would benefit from 1) resurfacing the ramp, 2) repairing the stairs, and 3) adding a rock garden/native planting to the side. Schieffer-Willowbrook neighbor David Boston has developed the proposal below.

Miles McEntee Memorial at Patterson Park

Memorial Bench Installed for Miles McEntee

Earlier this month, a memorial bench was installed near the Patterson Park skate ramp in honor of Miles McEntee (1990-2015), and last Saturday his friends and family gathered there to celebrate his birthday. Miles loved to skate at Patterson, and we are honored to have this beautiful spot for skaters and other visitors to rest in the shade at our park.  Rest in peace Miles.
