The Templo Mayor skatepark is based in Mexico City, and is a result of a collaboration between NIKE SB and the government in Mexico City.

The design takes inspiration from ancient Aztec history, and as stated on DesignBoom, "the Templo Mayor features Aztec influenced graphics and handrails and is also the home to a specially commissioned Aztec-style sculpture by Mexican artist Luis Ponce." The entrance to the skatepark is filled with colorful graphics, which is perfect for attracting potential skaters into the area. Once inside people have access to a range of different space for practicing their moves, and the best part is everything is free. Hopefully this will also encourage youth to take up a sport and stay out of trouble.
