Check out this article from STLtoday.com. STLtoday, Kingshighway Bridge to be rebuilt. Its sad news but we all knew it was just a matter of time. Look at it like this though, we have proven to the city that we need a place to skate. Even though it sucks we can turn this situation around and use it to our advantage! KHVT has been working on some new sites and will be approaching the city about a new park in the near future. Stay tuned for info. We are also in the middle of planning the next couple fundraising events so stay tuned for that info as well. WE WILL NOT GIVE UP!!! We have proven that with all your support we can make things happen and we will continue to do just that! Lets make this a summer to remember at KHB and shred the old bridge to death! Literally!
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!
