Many communities and companies have put up skate parks in different parts of the country. After all, these parks keep most skateboarders off the streets. It also allows a safer venue for skating enthusiasts to practice their skills and enjoy their interest.
Here are some security measures required in most skate parks:
Beginner’s Area – All skate parks should have their own newbie space for those who are still starting out. In that space of about 5 to 8 thousand square feet, the starter skaters can hone their start-up skills without getting into dangerous collisions, which can endanger experienced skaters, or get into accidents because of the use of advanced skating setups. According to Ocramps.com, the beginner’s space should contain the typical skateboard grinding rail, slow slopes, small hips, banks, and curbs.
Insurance and Legal Service – Since skate parks can involve accidents of all sorts, you will need a liability insurance along with an official legal representative. Some of the requirements for a proper legal office and insurance company would ask of you is a stable business plan along with the list of safety measures, rules, and regulations that you will implement in the park. Make sure that you do not open your park without these two requirements.
Reliable Equipment – Having both a beginner’s area, insurance and legal advisers will all be for nothing if your park’s ramps, pipes and other equipment are substandard. Don’t just aim for the cheap units or packages being advertised. Find a trustworthy company that has a long history of expert work and satisfied clients in its list of achievements. The quality of your park will eventually reflect its standard of excellence and service to your customers.
These three park features can minimize the accident rate, while keeping your skate park’s safety standards at an all-time high. Having a safe and stable skating park means more assurances of happy skaters, which means better business for you. Just remember to stay safe and have fun at the same time at all times.
