Creating expressive spaces
Action sports are all about freedom and passion expressed through movement, speed, and skill. Our action sport pros–turned-designers feel that passion first-hand and work to infuse the thrill of being an athlete into all of their designs...
Our team holds the largest, most notable portfolio of skate, bike, and motocross parks worldwide. Because our designers live outside of the box, they’re adept at creating functional, site-integrated, and visually spectacular spaces that give a cohesive sense of place, become a source of community pride, and leave your heart pumping. Whether it’s BMX facilities, skate plazas, bike parks, pump tracks, jumps, or trails, our designs incorporate defined pedestrian and spectator space and use integrated landscaping elements to create unique experiences. From Olympic training centers to local parks, we ensure the whole community can be welcomed into the parks whether participating or viewing in awe.

“In April 2016 the City Council voted unanimously to pursue the Safe Neighborhood Parks grant, a $300,000 county grant to build a skate park in the Manhattan Beach. Stantec Action Sports Group led a series of workshops hosted by Kanten Russell and gathered feedback from skaters and residents.
The skate park was designed by Colby Carter and Kanten Russell of Stantec. The Manhattan Beach Skatepark is a site specific design integrated into the space nicely and accommodates all types of skaters at all levels of ability. After 15+ years of waiting to get a skatepark, Manhattan Beach finally has one to call its own.”
