Public skateparks are typically the most popular recreational facilities in communities that have them. If your city doesn't have a skatepark, your city is a skatepark.

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. Our Skatepark Development Guide will lead you in the right direction.
