KHVT is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the construction of free public skateboard parks in the St. Louis, Mo. area, and to promoting skateboarding as a fun, healthy activity for both youths and adults.

KHVT was founded in support of the Kinghighway D.I.Y. skatespot, built between 2009 and 2015 by local skateboarders under the South Kinghshighway viaduct. When "the bridge" was demolished in July 2015, St. Louis was left with no free public skateparks. Since then, KHVT has built one new park, the Peter Mathews Memorial Skate Garden, and is working to create even more. Donations of time, labor, materials and money are welcome!

Shitside!!!!????? That's Lame!!

Shitty Fundraiser For DIY Skatepark, Shitside (St. Louis)

Randy Ploesser is organizing a shitty event to help raise money for St. Louis's DIY skate park under the Kingshighway viaduct (at Southwest and Kingshighway). This spot is known to many as Shitside, in reference to the famous Portland skate park that was built under similar conditions called Burnside. There will be boxes, rails, and ramps for skateboarding at the fundraiser, but anything that rolls is welcome (excluding bikes). There will be drinks available at the St. Louis Skatium bar and a large raffle giving away lots of product from all of the event’s sponsors. There will also be organized games of S.K.A.T.E. with half of the money pool going to the winner and the other half donated to helping Shitside. Come join the party and help make a great spot even better. What else do you have to do on a Tuesday night?
