The Brandon Skate Park is Hillsborough County government's first skate park. Local skateboarders supported and worked with Hillsborough County during the planning process to provide input on the design. Entry is FREE to skate throughout the summer; however, all skaters must wear helmets and complete a waiver.

Brandon Skate Park Features
• Bowl
An intermediate/professional bowl with all rounded walls, two hips and two general depths. The shallow end is 6 feet deep and just under-vert, and the deep end is more than 9 feet deep with 1 and a half feet of vert. The entire bowl has pool coping and tile.

• The Obstacle Street Section
The Obstacle Street Section has two main levels that split the park in two sections. The lower section has a few street plaza elements including a granite bench set at an angle, curved ledges, a cone pole jam, a manual pad, a small but long set of 4 stairs, a brick-stamped bank with a flat bar on top, as well as a handrail and flat rail. This area also has a very wide quarter pipe with steel coping, including a 12 foot pool coping extension, a smaller pyramid with a bull-nose granite flat rail, and a steep bank and hip. The lower section is connected to the upper section with a series of banks, including a step up that connects to an escalating-transition hip.

• Transition Elements
The Brandon Skate Park also features a series of transition elements: a 6 foot corner quarter pipe leads to a long and low A-shaped quarter pipe, and ends at a series of moguls that are located throughout. A third level takes skaters to the bowl, and this area is also connected with quarter pipes and more moguls that range in heights from 2 and a half feet to 5 feet.

This $499,501 CIP project was funded from Impact Fees and General Revenue. Team Pain and Charlotte Engineering and Surveying worked under Hennessy Construction Services Corp. as part of the design, permitting and construction team.
