ONGOING - CONCEPT ACTIVITY PARK - OSLO, NORWAY

Working alongside Link Arkitektur and Frognerparkens Venner, Betongpark have proposed a world class skatepark to form an integral part of a larger activity park within Oslo’s Frogner park. The skatepark adjoins and interacts with a plethora of other activities such as calisthenics, parkour, dance, basketball, climbing and dance.

The early concept design is a street-transition hybrid and will offer the skaters of Oslo everything they need in a skatepark.

A central bowl with various hips, extensions, pockets and escalators, is surrounded by a myriad of conventional street obstacles, as well as features influenced by the DIY Skate scene that emerged in the early 90’s. Adjacent to the extended bowl platform is planned a multifunctional “street – ditch” flow area with options for the beginner, intermediate and advanced user.
