WHY SKATEPARKS?
Engaging The Community
Engaging The Community Every skatepark is the result of a partnership between youth, government, and local civic organizations. In spite of their rough edges, skateboarding youth often prove to be incredible advocates for the things that are important to them, and the long process of skatepark development is transformative not just for the skateboarders, but for the agencies and individuals that work with them.
Get Started
The process of getting a park teaches kids in the community valuable lessons about perseverance, and that working with their city leaders can be a positive experience.
Kids deserve a place to grow Skateparks build and sustain healthy communities. As a gathering place for dedicated, athletic youth, the skatepark provides the forum for visitors young and old, beginning and skilled, to meet and share experiences. For many skateboarding youth, the skatepark becomes a home-away-from-home.
