Completed in 2008, this park was built as a partnership between Misiano Construction, the General Contractor (Misiano provided site work, GC and Superintendant Services, onsite design changes and approvals, grading, landscaping, parking lot, utilities vendor trailer, a lot of labor during rebar and pour times, custom signage and "NSB" bowl tile) 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 getting the property designated, the skatepark committee themselves did a GPS tree survey of the heavily wooded 2 acre lot.
The skatepark committee created a siteplan, complete with a rough design from Team Pain and a bowl designed by legendary Florida pro, Kelly Lynn. They then applied 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.
Misiano donated additional concrete flatwork 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. Misiano also donated a sign that hangs in the NSB proshop that has all of the other donations listed, along with people who worked on the project.

The red Coping pockets were another upgrade that Misiano footed the bill for. The whole wall was going to be about 18" shorter with no coping. Rat-a-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat....
