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!

DO NOT SKATE ANYTHING THAT IS OBVIOUSLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!! I.E. blocks and gravel piled around, tarps over, do not skate signs, caution tape..... Concrete can take up to 4 or 5 days to be ready to skate. We check on the new stuff twice a day and as soon as its ready you will know! Its not worth risking screwing it up for everyone! Concrete will be there for along time so why chance it? If something you want to skate is under construction just keep checking back till its cleaned up and then we can all skate it for as long as the bridge is over our heads!!!!
