Houston Press Names Spring Skatepark the Best in the City
Yesterday we gave you a heads up on the Houston Press's Best of Houston 2014 list being released, and today, the results are in! They say everything's bigger in Texas and in the case of Spring Skatepark, it's the truth. The recently opened 72,000-square foot skate park is the largest in North America, and took home the honor of Best Skate Park in Houston. It's really no surprise since the park includes a 10-foot bowl as well as a couple of backyard-style pools, a 12-foot vertical ramp, banked walls and speed hips. Additionally, the park offers obstacles that street riders often encounter, including a section of stairs, banks, ledges, benches and rails. If you haven't had a chance to check out Spring Skatepark yet, now there's proof that hitting it up needs to be on your to-do list.
