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!

***Help us find new spots!!!!!***

We have been talking with local city officials about taking over some abandon spots within the city limits and building "skate gardens" on them! Our plan is to take these areas clean them up and turn them into functional skate areas! We still need more spots to submit, the more we find the better our choices! The original plan b spot is unfortunately a no go because its under an interstate which is controlled by the state and not the city.

This is what we are looking for....
Run down lots
within the city limits of St. Louis
existing concrete or asphalt is ok
dirt lots are ok
lots in more commercial or industrial areas are better for noise issues
areas that look very run down
city owned is preferable

With these factors in mind, take a look around when your driving around. Eye sore areas are the best spots because anything in its place would make it better! A physical address of something close and brief description will help the most. We have a very good contact at the city that is willing to work with us so either post the spot on KHVT St. Louis Facebook page or email them to us at! All submissions will be considered so get HUNTING!!!!!
