Public projects include streets, bridges, parks, public art and pedestrian improvements. Inducements are also offered to developers to bring new commerce to the Zone. The Authority funded the design and construction of Spring Skate Park and Dylan Park.

Southside Skatepark

BAF_Skate_fliers_southsideSouthside Skatepark began as a private mini ramp surrounded by old cars and guns here in a warehouse in South Houston, Texas in the Spring of 1994. Those early day sessions grew larger and larger as the word spread of the indoor mini ramp. With the closing of the Skatepark of Houston there was not as much transition and even fewer places to skateboard. In those days you had to either build your own ramp at your house, have a friend who had a ramp or steal materials from construction sites and build illegal ramps in the woods. It was very difficult for skateboarders to find anywhere to ride as society held tightly to the stereotypes of the 80's when giving the swift boot at any of the local street spots. No one cared about you or your skateboard and in fact most of your friends and family would prefer you quit and get on with yourself. That's what we loved about it so much, that's why we fought so hard for it, because no one was going to give it to us. Southside Skatepark embodies to true spirit of the original do it yourself skateboarder. We hope that all skateboarders will join us as we celebrate 21 years of die hard skateboarding, done for the right reasons and remaining as Core as 94 to this very day.
