Completed in 2008, this park was built as a partnership between Misiano Construction, the General Contractor and Team Pain Skateparks who built the skatepark. Owner Tony Misiano began working on the project in 2005 when he joined the local skatepark committee (www.NSBskate.com) and helped to get the project off of the ground. After convincing the city to build a park and getting the property designated, the skatepark committee along with Zev Cohen and Associates (Daniel Young, ZCA and skatepark committee member) provided and donated a GPS tree survey of the 2 acre lot. The committee also pulled together their resources to apply for a Volusia County ECHO grant for $250,000, along with a Tony Hawk Foundation grant for $5000. The City of NSB kicked in the final $117,000 to make the project happen.
The skatepark committee (including Misiano) created a complete siteplan for development of the property with the help of a skatepark plan donated by Team Pain, and including a bowl that was designed by legendary Florida pro Kelly Lynn (later re-designed by Team Pain and pitched to the city by Misiano). When the project was finally approved, it was put out to bid and Misiano Construction won the bid, partnered with Team Pain who as required, had built several skateparks in Florida to date. Misiano cleared the 2 acre lot and prepared for the skatepark crew by installing the bowl drain pipe work and over 8 feet of fill dirt across the 8400sf footprint. Along with being the GC and hands-on Site Superintendant, Misiano also provided final grading, Landscape, Parking lot, Utilities, Vendor trailer, Custom Signage, and custom tile in the bowl and skatepark. Misiano also donated additional concrete for the street skaters, and Team Pain donated a concrete skate bench. Other donations came from the Plumber and the Electrician and many others to complete the vendor trailer and get the park open without delay.
During construction it was also necessary for Misiano to re-draw certain elements of the park, together with the help of Team Pain foreman Lance Spiker, City Draftsman Charles Herbold and Structrual Engineer Tom Williams. This was necessary to keep the job moving and keep the inspectors happy as the park layout changed in the field. Since it's construction, Misiano has developed a working relationship with City Engineer Kyle Fegley and his Draftsman Charles Herbold. Together they've designed a complete phase 3 addition for the park which includes a street skate orientated area and a separate BMX park, and they worked together to draft the plans for Pettis Park, NSB's other skatepark that was later built by Misiano Skateparks. Misiano continues his NSB skatepark efforts with the city and currently, several other locations are being discussed for other skate spots around the city.
