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!

Portrait of Bob by Peat Wollaeger

Bob Cassilly, The local visionary behind the St. Louis City Museum passed away yesterday. Bob was a TRUE DIY hero! He did his own thing always and made St. Louis a more beautiful and creative place. On top of his wonderful sculptures that are known internationally he also has helped the Kingshighway Skatepark by donating materials. His tenacity and vision of a more beautiful city was an inspiration to KHVT. You will be missed Bob. RIP
