Weghorst Skatepark Overview
Designed by Los Angeles-based skatepark design-build company, Spohn Ranch, Weghorst Skatepark is located in downtown Portsmouth, Ohio, near the border with Kentucky and West Virginia. The park officially opened on April 9, 2022.
The skatepark is within Weghorst Park, close to the confluence of the Ohio and Scioto rivers – the park plans had to be approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who manages the nearby levee.
The designers made nice use of the space. The Portsmouth skatepark features a neat combi flow bowl with two different depths, several hips, and a capsule.
The mini bowl shares its deck with a concrete mini ramp that’s enclosed one by a third transition wall to form a kind of square bowl.
From the deck of the mini ramp, the park drops down banks into a street plaza, forming two hips, one flat and one curved.
The street plaza includes a range of features, including a quarterpipe with a hip, an A-frame with matching rail, ledges, flat rail, and manny pads.
