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!

What have you built?

Joe Lopes had a wooden half pipe in his back yard in the 1980's....It's was an epic spot for west coast skaters to come meet, work and skate... Lopes has since passed away, and is now compost like his wooden ramp...The point is... Skateboarders have built terrian for them selves to ride for decades.. Don't go to the grave without contributing to skateboarding.

What have you done for skateboarding today?
