MEET THE SEATTLE ARTIST WHO DESIGNED A BACON ’N EGGS INSPIRED SKATEPARK

July 10, 2024/ / VIDEOS/ Comments: 2

Every skate event has a unique obstacle to rely on. We’ve seen heart-shaped sunglasses, volcanos that erupt, ledge-sized shoe boxes, and countless others. They usually last for the duration of the event before getting ripped to pieces, but what if those obstacles were built to last in, I don’t know, say a permanent skatepark?

Well, then you’d have Bacon and Eggs skatepark in Wilkeson, WA. Consisting of a pair of sunny side ups and a piece of bacon within a frying pan shaped park, this complete breakfast functions as a skateable art piece.

Because we couldn’t believe this place existed we went to meet up with John Hilding, the artist behind the park, to chat about his artistic background, run ins with Warhol, and the story behind the creation of the park with Grindline. We also brought along two Washington natives, Elise Hedge and Caden Smith, to test the valor of a frying pan skate park. Enjoy!
