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!

*** Bridge WORK DAY TOMORROW June 30th!!!! ***

We need to get some things in order and tidy up for the upcoming pour at the bridge!!! We plan on pouring the rest of the bowl including wall out of the shallow end and a hip to cap the riddler pocket Thursday, July 7th and our normal crew will be a little short so mark your calender because we need all the help we can get!!!

Unfortunately most of our normal KHVT building crew have to work our regular jobs until the afternoon tomorrow but It will be all hands on deck around 3pm and into the evening to get the new forms in the bowl.

If you can make it out earlier here are a few things you can do to help on your own!

1. Pick up trash and dump trash cans into the dumpster

2. Sweep up gravel and debris and put it into the fill pile

3. Clean up parking lot and rearrange brick piles in parking lot

4. Repair drain mesh from the last storm and clean out drains

Thanks for helping out! Remember this is our spot so lets keep it tight!

*** Remembering P. M. M. ***

Peter Mathews was a local ripper who tragically lost his life last year in a car accident. His friends and family decided that a great way to remember him would be to have a benefit in his honor and donate the money to our Skategarden Project!!! Come out and have a drink to Pete's memory at The Mack whether you knew him or not and raise some money for a good cause, St. Louis Skateboarding!!!! Thanks out to Christine Ingrassia and Courtney Colombo

*** Please pick up TRASH! Work day Thursday June 30th ***

Thank you all for supporting St. Louis Skateboarding and coming out to our GSD 2011 events!!!
With all the shredding comes a lot of trash. We are very close to having a few new spots and the last thing we need is for the powers that be to come checking out our bridge and seeing all the trash! Please take a few minutes while your shredding to pick up some trash and put it in the dumpster and dump the trash cans. Every little bit helps!!!

Also we will be cleaning up and putting up forms for the next pour on Thursday June 30th.
We will be there all day and there is plenty to do so don't be shy and come out and help us get it done!!!! Bring shovels, brooms, gloves, gardening equipment, drills, 2x4's, plywood, wheelbarrows and of course your shred stick for break time sessions!!!!
