In connection with the rearrangement of the new bike park in Wilnsdorf, we planned a 200m2 concrete pool. We designed it for an association called Förderverein Skateranlage Wilnsdorf e.V. Since over 10 years the association is busy with the structural maintenance, after a long time they got the financial support to start with the rearrangement.
The start of the new concrete pool was on the 21.08.2017. A small part of the concrete pool was build by the association, but the bigger part was made by a professional company. The design was made in cooperation by Dietsches O.M.S.A. One important characteristic of the concrete pool is the waterfall, which has a height difference from 1,7m to 2,3m. Next to the waterfall, we build a Hip to skip between the levels. Across from the Hip the skaters have the possibility to do creative lines.
The Opening was on the 01.10.2017 !

Skateparks are very attractive vehicles for development cooperation for a variety of reasons. They promote social and integrative skills, as well as coordination and sensory-motor skills. Unlike classical club sports, the emphasis here is on self-organisation and group cohesion. They therefore represent a very good means of selfhelp: instead of competitiveness, cooperation is encouraged and is lastingly anchored in society.

The permanently usable area will receiving a pool/ Bowl made of in-situ concrete, at the temporary area in-situ concrete elements be placed on an existing asphalt surface. The first workshop with the future users has already taken place. With this workshop the users could integrate wishes and ideas into the design process. Moreover participation strengthens the acceptance and use for the park.
Within the participation process it turned out, that the locals like to have a mellow pool with spine-variations. Therefore the pool has an ideal flow for beginners and advanced skaters.
The temporarily used part is based on an open space area. The in-situ concrete obstacles lay in cobblestones, to give the user the impression of skating in the streets. Inside this streetarea you have a wooble, a flatrail, a pyramid with hubba and a table. The street area and the bowl area ar connected with banks and a handrail.
The active opening was on the 20. October. Besides trying the new skatepark out, users could have a little refreshment at the barbecue.
Finally, there is a set of rules for skate parks, because in the past decades the popular sports skateboard, BMX and mountain bike became mainstream sports.
