Mooresville Skatepark Overview

The new Mooresville Skatepark, which is slated to open officially in November 2022, replaces a previous skatepark which featured modular steel ramps and street features on a concrete pad.

The new park, which cost just under $3 million, is a significant upgrade. The park is designed and built by North Carolina-based Artisan Skateparks

The overall layout of the park is a large square with one corner cut off. The park includes two bowls, an amoeba bowl, and a square bowl, both with pool coping. On the far side of the park from the bowls is a shallow snake run that’s perfect for skaters just starting to get the hang of cruising on banked terrain.

The center of the park is a massive street plaza. The plaza is packed with features, including banks, rails, handrails, hubbas, ledges and manual pads. One of the manual pads in the design has a large 3# on it, which is presumably a reference to local NASCAR racing hero, the late Dale Earnhart.

Similarly, the snake run and some other features have checkered flags incorporated, presumably a reference to NASCAR racing. Moorseville is home to a number of NASCAR racing teams, hence the local reverence for the motorsport.

NASCAR fetishism aside (just remember Moorseville skate kids, your sport is the raddest!), good on the residents of Moorseville for investing in such an impressive-looking skatepark. Should be fun!

The skatepark will have its own restroom facilities, which is always a nice touch.
