Native Skateparks just built a new park in Bristow, Oklahoma. It’s called Pirate Action Sports Park, which is pretty corny, but Bristow High School’s teams are the Pirates, so it’s apt.

At the time of our visit, the park was less than a month old. There is one set of bleachers and a few benches to sit on, otherwise it’s pretty barren.

I don’t have much to type about this. The park is fun, and it’s easy to find a line and keep your speed, as it’s pretty basic. It’s free, no lights that I saw, and no helmet police. But that all could change, i’m sure.

I also don’t care enough to edit the clip to music, so here it is. Enjoy.

  1. As the Chairman of Pirate Action Sports park (a 501(c)3 organization), I feel the need to respond to this listing. Our original plans included a much bigger and challenging facility. However, due to our goal of raising funds for this park strictly through private donations and grants, after a year of non-stop efforts we weren’t able to reach our total goal. After some input from Native Skateparks and local skaters we decided to pull the trigger and begin construction on what we had funds for. We received little to no help from the City, and had more than our share of difficulties even getting this project off the ground. Our original goal was to service the smaller communities around us that either have no skatepark, or a modular ramp configuration. Pirate Action Sports Park is not a completed facility, as there are many improvements to come as funding allows. I’m not sure it will ever be considered “completed”. AS the sport changes, we will too.

    • Billy,

      I appreciate you adding some info. I’m sure people who find this listing will be glad to know that there are plans for expansion.

      Don’t take my post as a negative criticism, it wasn’t intended that way. The park is actually pretty fun, and I kinda figured it would be built out a bit more, including landscaping and spectator areas.

      Thanks for all you’ve done to help get another skatepark built in Oklahoma!

      In addition I own Black Mesa Skateboards, so if you ever throw any events there and would like a local sponsor, just give me a shout!

      • I didn’t think it was negative, I’ve learned the hard way to get out in front of things. It’s been a labor of love, and I consider it to be a child of mine. lol I have some ideas that I’d like to discuss with you. What’s the best way to contact you directly?
