Grindline is skater-owned and operated so as life-long skateboarders, Grindline can translate the needs of local skaters into a skatepark design that works for them now and into the future.To find out more about Grindline, visit their website.

The project is organized with the support of The Art Institute of Seattle, whose degree programs in the areas of Design, Media Arts, Fashion, and Culinary help students focus their talents and explore what they’re passionate about.
