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!

Unearth the TURF!!!!!!!


The Turf Skate park was a Midwestern skate mecca from the 70's to the early 90's before it was covered due to skateboardings near death then, now some vigilantes just like us are fighting to revive it! Check out there saga at and see what you can do to help out at Save the Turf or the newly formed Milwaukee Skateboard Association pages on Facebook. Lend a hand to our brothers to the north and maybe some day you will have a chance to skate history!
