The Orcas Island Skatepark / Scott Stamnes Memorial Skatepark was built in 2002. The founders of the now legendary skatepark design/build firms of Grindline and Dreamland created the park. They built the park by skating and dreaming each zone from the giant bowl to the death box. The park draws skaters from around the world and is a monument to local skaters. 2018 marks the fifteenth year of this grand monster of a park. The park is still a ride to be reckoned with and provides a challenge for both beginners and experts. Always wear a helmet!
Over the past fifteen years the miles and hours of rides, grinds, and rips have taken their toll. With the generous support of Orcas Island taxpayers and a grant from the San Juan County Public Facilities Financing Assistance Program, Orcas Island Park and Recreation District was able to hire Grindline Skatepark builders to complete much needed repairs and renovations. The park is now open and ready for use.
