The program defines a multipurpose skate zone with various areas and levels of difficulty: a street area on the upper part, which will operate as the entrance door, a snake run area that will allow long run skateboarding and an area at the end with three pools. The skate park is thought of as a new artificial topography, like a set of dunes built into the terrain that makes use of its incline towards the sea front, following the Poble Nou Park’s strategy. It also seeks a good relationship of continuity with the existing vegetation and the paths that arrive to and mark out the intervention area.
