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!
With the looming threats of our bridges demise, KHVT has been feverishly searching out new spots to develop. If anyone has ideas, spots or private property that you think would be a good place for a new park please email us at email@example.com. Also we are in need of some more members to our team. We are currently looking for anyone with experience in grant writing, accounting, fundraising, sales/donation solicitation, skateboarding advocacy and non profit work to help take our organization to the next level! We are a 501c3 accredited non profit organization but at this time we are only excepting volunteers. If you are interested or know someone that might be, send a brief informal resume of experience that would apply to firstname.lastname@example.org . Helping us out would be a great resume builder and will give you a chance to give back to our community! We will take all the help we can get! We have a massive site in the works for a new park but we are still in the early stages so i cannot give out any details just yet but know that St. Louis skateboardings future is looking very bright, or should i saw dark?!?!? hint hint.....

Things are looking pretty rough down at the bridge which is to be expected considering the cold conditions but we still need to take care of whats ours! Come out tomorrow around noon and help us get it together. There's plenty to do including painting, sweeping and as usual PICKING UP TRASH! Come prepared for the weather and bring gloves, painting supplies such as rollers trays paint, brooms, trash bags or anything that you think we will need. I'm sure a sick session will follow which is reward enough for anyone! Thanks!
Sick video from when Elwood came through town last year! Lots of good tennis court footage which is kinda sad but I like the way the guys at Pretty put it, " Let Mr. Kenny Anderson's line in the above video be the proverbial cherry on top of a long and joyous era of skateboarding in St. Louis."
