The 10-acre Greenspoint Spring Recreation Area on Kuykendahl and Rankin roads provides not only the largest skatepark in the U.S., but also a specially designed park for special-needs children.
Dylan Park is completely wheelchair accessible and offers features for visitors of all abilities. The special-needs park has areas designed to engage children who are sight-impaired, hearing-impaired, autistic or wheelchair-bound. The fenced- in park will include open grassy areas for unstructured play, plus walking trails and a community center.
On the other side of the complex is the 78,000-square-foot skate park including a competition-scale Texas bowl featuring a full pipe, a 12-foot vertical ramp, a 10-foot bowl, banked walls and speed hips. In addition, there is a section designed to emulate the street-skating experience and will have ledges, rails, benches, banks, quarter pipes and stair obstacles. With this latest addition, Houston is now host to two world-class skate facilities, the Spring skate park and downtown's Lee and Joe Jamail Skate Park.
