Rassekh Skatepark

What is this project about?

In October 2021, the Lake Oswego City Council directed the Parks and Recreation Department to develop a new 10,000-square-foot skatepark as part of Rassekh Park. This decision was based on community feedback received through the Rassekh Park public outreach process, as well as public testimony in support of the skatepark that was provided at  related City Council meetings. The City is very excited to be partnering with California Skateparks to design and build this new facility for the Lake Oswego community.

Where will the skatepark be located?

The Rassekh property is a 9.8-acre property located on Stafford Road, just northwest of the roundabout at Stafford Rd/Rosemont Rd/Atherton Dr. The property was originally acquired by the City in 1996 as a result of the 1990 Parks Bond, with the intention of being developed as a park with opportunities for active recreation for the community. The skatepark will be located in the northeast corner of the Rassekh Park property (approximate area shown in white on the map below) and will be integrated with the park's network of trails and other park elements such as the sports field, picnic shelter, restrooms, drinking fountains, seating, and play area. Click here to learn more about the overall design for the Rassekh Park.

Where are we in the process?

The design process for the Rassekh Skatepark is now complete! Thank you to everyone who participated in the online survey and the community meetings on April 2, 2022 and May 5, 2022. In addition to the two community meetings, the design process was guided by a Skatepark Task Force with representatives from the local skating community, Palisades Neighborhood Association, the parks board, and other interested parties.

The land use application for the skatepark is integrated with the application for the overall Rassekh Park development. The application is now complete, and is currently in the review process.
