Here is a great example of a Community Skategarden Project. This is almost exactly what we at KHVT are trying to do in St. Louis. A project like this not only makes a great place to skate for skaters by skaters but it also breaks down a lot of the social barriers between skaters and there community by bringing everyone together for a common goal! Check out the link above.
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!
