In the course of developing SK8parkLIST.com, we have photographed and ridden over 400 skate parks in the US and Canada. Even in today's wave of increasingly impressive skate park efforts, Wormhoudt parks remain at the top of their field. These guys produce uniquely successful parks, with creative lines, that are fun to skate and push the abilities of the skaters that ride them. When we set out on our road trips, the Wormhoudt name pretty much guarantees we're gonna have a good time! We're big fans.
Wormhoudt Inc. delivered the whole package, from meeting with the skaters on the design of the park, working with the local skate association on issues, working with the contractor answering questions on the detail construction, and working with the City's Engineer. It was a pleasure to work with Zach and I would recommend to anyone looking to build a skate park, contact Zach first.

We have built three skate parks to date that were designed by Wormhoudt Inc. They have been at it for quite some time now and it shows in their designs
and ability to put out a set of plans that are complete from a contractors point of view. They have clean layouts with clean details and it makes our job so much easier. We hear nothing but complements about the park designs from all of the skaters that monitor the construction progress, bugging us to get in before we have finished the project.

After 27 years of intensive use, Derby Skate Park is still an outstanding facility. Wormhoudt Incorporated has come a long way since the development of Derby Park, as skaters of all abilities continue to be challenged by Wormhoudt's newer creations.

We held interviews with all of the top skate park designers, and were immediately impressed with Zach's professionalism, his list of recommendations, his incredible creativity and his style and approach. We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Zach closely on our 13,000 sq. foot project which earned us 2003 State California Park and Recreation Society design award, and a very good rating from thrasher Magazine of an 8.5. It was incredible to see Zach in action as he worked directly with skaters gaining their support and incorporating their ideas into the design. We were equally pleased with how he spoke in front of our Parks and Recreation Commission, staff, neighbors, and Council.
Without reservation, I would recommend zach Wormhoudt to design your skate Park.

The new San Jose Park is awesome. Iíve been all around the country and this is by far the best skate park anywhere in the United States.

Every town has been getting new parks, then Zach's office designs Louisville and tops them all. Thank you Zach!
Reviews coming in by mail and on the Internet continue to reflect the quality of design Wormhoudt, Inc. provided for our project. I truly believe we have the best skate park in the world thanks to the professional attention Zach and his team devoted to the City of Louisville.
