The iconic Riverfront Skate Park in Fort Smith, AR has generated a ton of stoke and for good reason. ARC was approached to develop a park concept that truly combined skate and bike focused recreation in a connected and symbiotic design (and boy, did we). Working with Bobby Aldridge from Frontier Engineering and the city of Fort Smith, we contracted to design and build all of the action sports specialty scope utilizing our custom concrete construction team Pivot Custom for all of the flowy goodness in the skate park, Velosolutions USA for a compact but rad asphalt pumptrack, and Progressive Bike Ramps for the bicycle playground and gnarly jump/skills line.
In Fort Smith we were asked to create an all-wheel park like nothing ever seen before and we delivered. This project had our entire team involved at one point or another. We also created some unique local features including a large skateable Arkansas and a rideable arrow sticking out of the skatepark! At the grand opening we had 2,000 people in attendance and the park continues to be a huge hit in the area. We take pride in building parks like Fort Smith’s that become a gathering place for every wheeled sport.
