Hi, im an architecture student in london, and i am currently doing a similar project as you although i am more looking at street skate setting for skateboarding, but my advice for you is to look at some skatepark designs that have been done already to see how they work and flow, and also find out information on skateboarders try and get some statistics on ollie heights, average turning circles on skateboards and so on, that way you can find out realistic spaces for ramps and realistic heights for rails or other places to grind.
Research is the biggest part of architecture so enjoy finding out about skateboarding and may i suggest reading Skateboarding, space and the city:architecture and body by Lain Borden it might help you,
also check out website.
