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!

The first Night Light Session of the year will be on Saturday March 12 around 7:30!
There is a twist! We at KHVT have been debating if we should continue to put more money into the bridge with its imminent destruction upon us. We also have a lot of projects on the horizon that are going to take every penny we have and more but, that pocket in the bowl would be so sweet to skate this summer. So we have devised a plan! We estimate it will only cost $300-$400 to finish the shallow pocket and come down the waterfall with it, so to raise that money we have decided to panhandle for any small donations you are willing to give at the next couple night sessions and Skate 101 events. If everyone gave $5 we could be skating that pocket by the end of April! Also all donations received through our PayPal tab to the right for the next month will be used for the KH bowl! TELL EVERYONE you know to ante up!!!

The sky is falling at the Bridge... The harsh freeze thaw of the winter is trying to cut our last summer short... From the spine splitter to the railroad tracks is where the majority of the debris is falling. Watch where you park your car or even park on Bischoff. We will be bringing a ladder and knocking the loose stuff down periodically through out the spring. Just keep your heads up and BE CAREFUL!!!
