Skate Parks for Dallas, with the Dallas Parks Foundation (a 501(c)(3)), is working with the city & skaters, citizens & companies to build Dallas's first public, concrete skatepark. This project will help realize the vision of the vast skate community in the city.

On November 7, 2017, the citizens of Dallas voted overwhelming YES to a Parks Bond worth $261.807 Million, including $4M for a concrete skatepark. Parks Department is targeting the skate park at Bachman Lake Park and DART's Bachman Station, just a sort ride from Downtown Dallas. Bachman Lake is in City Council District 6, and the District 6 City Council Member is Omar Narvaez (Mr. Narvaez's FB) and the District 6 Park Board Member is Timothy W. Dickey.
