The Harold E. LeMay Skateboard Park at Sprinker Recreation Center was built of concrete due to the materialís elastic qualities and low maintenance.

The parkís 27,000 square feet of concrete was shaped into several types of skate challenges, from small manual pads for beginners to a 12-foot-deep pool-type feature for advanced skaters. Other features include a 16-foot-high, 360-degree lens, snake runs, steps with railings, 10-foot-plus vertical walls, boxes and bowls.
