Building Codes For Pools
Building codes for pools are necessary and should not be ignored when designing and building a skatepark. A well designed and built skatepark will be safer, more enjoyable, and more enjoyable to use than a concrete park would be. While safety should always be a priority, safety in general on skateboards and in general should be considered equal to safety on a skateboard. It is easy to build a skatepark that meets the local building codes; it is much more difficult to build one that is sufficiently safe and secure enough to provide a real skateboarding thrill.
One such highly suggested skatepark design comes from the folks at Windham, Massachusetts who has designed the Omer Curve skatepark in a style that they claim is modeled after some of the most famous skateboard parks in the world such as the Park District in London. The Omer Curve in Windham was designed so that skaters would be able to take a spill, have good line of visibility, be able to skate in different orientations, and even have more room on the inside of the skatepark. According to the official website, the Omer Curve is “designed with all of the necessities in mind in order to offer a complete skateboarding experience to its users.” The website also states that the city of Windham is very excited about the safety features that are being put into place, and that this skatepark will soon be opening for skating by the end of the year.
Another great resource for learning about building codes for pools is to talk to your local pool contractor.

This can give you some insight as to what kind of things you can expect. If you still aren’t sure, ask them what the laws regarding the construction of a pool are in your area, as this can be a major help when it comes time to build your pool.
