HOW MUCH DO SKATEPARKS COST?

Skateparks are valuable community assets – but they do come at a cost. While gathering community support with our petition we also hope to raise some funds to back the project as well. The two costs associated with skateparks are the construction of the facility and the cost of on-going maintenance.

On average a skatepark can run as low as $25 per square foot but will usually range around $45-$50.
Square-foot size of skatepark X $50 = Skatepark Creation Cost Estimate +/- Project Cost Factors

The size of a skatepark is determined by how much it will serve in the community. According to the U.S. 2019 Census, Central Maui accounts for approximately 58k people. Of this population, 8.5%…. The proposed skatepark in Central Maui should be between 10,000 – 15,000 square feet to accommodate its patrons. 10,000 square feet may sound like a lot, but it’s roughly the size of the in-field of a baseball field.

BUDGETING

HOW CAN WE CUT COSTS?

There are ways that costs can be reduced for skatepark design and construction.

ADJACENT AMENITIES

Selecting a location with bathrooms, a parking lot and public access can cut down on the cost of planning and construction.

VOLUNTEER LABOR

Volunteer labor used for non-critical or menial, unskilled tasks can greatly reduce costs all around.

IN-KIND DONATIONS

Donations of concrete, rebar, and heavy equipment among other things can reduce the skatepark builder’s bill.

SIZE

Designing an appropriately sized skatepark to serve the community will ensure a controlled budget.
