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!

We have two new ways that you can donate online. So, check out our NEW DONATION TAB on the side bar and be sure to tell your friends and family! Tell EVERYONE!!! No donation is too small. Even a dollar makes a difference! You can also check out our NEW ONLINE SHOPPING CART where you will find a revolving selection of KHVT apparel and other items donated by local companies and supporters. It might not look like much now but we have new (and old) KHVT t-shirts coming soon, so stay tuned. If you would like to donate items to show your support just drop us an email.

 *All donations go to improving YOUR local d.i.y. skatepark!

We were recently contacted by Living St. Louis, a show on channel 9, about them doing an episode on our park. Come out possibly get interviewed and throw hammers for the TV. The more people there the better we look so come support us by doing what we like to do best,  SK8!!!! thx B.

*** Work Day Thursday, July 8 ***

Tomorrow all day come help us put up forms, do dirt work and build walls in order to get ready for a concrete truck.

Also if you have any scrap 2x4's, plywood, cinder blocks or mortar mix bring it! Be prepared to get dirty!   thx,  B.
