Presentation of the future skate park in Fažana
Skate park Mediteran
The idea of building the Mediterranean skate park has been present for more than five years now. It arose from the local skaters desire to channel their time, energy and creativity into the construction and management of one of the most high quality skate centers of the Mediterranean. The skate park infrastructure and visual identity would be modeled to reproduce the nature of the environment in which it would be created, the conceptual starting point would thus be the sea, as it is a primary feature of the region. Consequently, the skate elements would be incorporated into an overall structure that meets both aesthetic and functional criteria. Ramps and rails would be replaced with playful organically designed shapes reminiscent of sea waves suspended in time. Therefore, the concrete groundwork would be modeled in shapes that perfectly fit into the Mediterranean architecture.
Regardless of how valuable the history of the city & its region is, the modern Fažana youth deserves more than growing up under a glass dome display of the past. What used to be a beautiful portal to the Brijuni also deserves to be just as magnificient of a door to as many horizons in life as possible to the younger generations born and raised there.

The building of this kind of skate park requires the involvement of experts who are familiar with that kind of construction and more importantly, with the laws of skateboarding, skate parks and their essential qualities, including the safety of their visitors. Accordingly, the realization of the project should be done by experienced companies specialized in skate park design and construction.
The Mediterranean skatepark would be a unique jewel, not only for Istria and Croatia, but also for the wider region, as it would constitute a conceptual project intended for skating, that could also rise beyond its functional domain to an artistic sphere.

The presentation of the Skate park Mediteran was presented to the Fažana public on two occasions, first in May 17th 2017 and again in March 12th 2019.
