The proposed design of the Riverton Skatepark calls for the facility to be built at ground level, not sunken into the ground. The edges of the park's bowls would feature landscaped berms.

(Riverton, Wyo.) – It’s official. Riverton’s new skatepark will be located within City Park, just north of the tennis courts and west of the playground. That decision was reached Tuesday night by the city council. Representing the Central Wyoming Skateboaring Association (CWSA), Matt Wright said a decision on a location was needed so the group could begin applying for grants.

The current site of the skatepark, in the park’s northeast corner, could become a parking lot and site for community activities, such as a farmers or flea market, once the new stakepark is built.

The most discussion on the facility occurred over a sign the CWSA asked to erect in the park with a thermometer to indicate progress in fundraising. Ultimately it was agreed to place the sign 20 feet from Federal Boulevard where the new park would be built.
