Houston City Council Member Dave Martin and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department are pleased to announce a ribbon cutting event at Dylan Duncan Skate Park to celebrate completed improvements and renovations.

The request for improvements was brought to the attention of Council Member Martin in early 2019 and he was honored to use $49,332 of his Council District Service Funds to make the necessary renovations which will improve safety as well as maximize enjoyment for park goers.
 
The Dylan Duncan Skatepark, originally named the Kingwood Skatepark, was the very first public skatepark built by the City of Houston in 2004. It was renamed the Dylan Duncan Skatepark in December of 2006 after Dylan Jacob Duncan, an avid skater in the Kingwood area who passed away in 2005.
 
The renovations include: updating and installing new equipment, recoating surfaces throughout the park, adding barriers and removing panels, power washing and painting gazebos, and various other repairs as needed.
 
To celebrate these improvements, please join Dave Martin for a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, July 16 at 9:00 a.m. at the Dylan Duncan Skate Park, 3950 Rustic Woods, Kingwood, Texas 77339.

Not very many kids wear a helmet. Wish it could be enforced.

Years ago after Joseph Stanton was injured team Joseph would go over and give a gift card or something to kids that were wearing them. I totally agree it should be enforced.
 
The same as on a bike. I get on my 14 year old all the time about wearing a helmet. I'm sure she takes it off after she leaves because most kids won't wear them and she thinks kids will make fun of herbbut if I see her without it there will be heck to pay.

They made the park worse and they need to redo the concrete. Its all cracked. A lot of the skaters are not happy with what they've done.
