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!

Skeleton Crew comes through!!!!

This impromptu pour kind of came out of nowhere! A generous donation of a yard and a half of crete turned into 4 and it went down 2 hours before it was supposed to! Luckily Super Eddy answered the early morning distress call for help and showed up! There are many hero's at KHVT but several more where made yesterday! Thanks out to the skeleton crew of Eddy, TJ, Simon, Russ, Jason, Shawn, Matt and Ben for showing up and making it happen under the worst conditions!!!

NEW - KHVT Apparel

We have a very limited quantity of new KHVT tees, ladies tees and hoodies that will be available this Saturday at the PBR Blow Out. So, you will have to come on out and see us to make sure that you get one.

DON'T FORGET! This Saturday night!!!!!!

DANGER!!! Watch out!!!

Next week the street department will be under the bridge retrofitting some pillars for our safety! This is a good sign as far as the life expectancy of our spot is concerned. They will have to tear out some things but nothing we can't replace so don't worry! PLEASE stay out of there way and even avoid going there all together during the days prior to turkey day. They will be using dangerous heavy machinery so please be courteous and let them do there thing and buy us some time!

Don't you wish you had one? Now you can!!!

Check out this SICK local backyard beast! I'll give you a hint, its in the St. Louis Metro area.... Show Me Pools, a local skatepark builder and major bridge contributors, want to build one for YOU!!! Backyard mini ramps are ok but how would you like to invite your friends over to rip this? Or even better one designed from your own ideas? Show Me Pools can make your dream a reality! For info email them @ and check out there blog @
