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!

Morganford Skategarden UPDATE!!!

Preliminary design for the first of many STL Skategardens!!
This one, The Peter Mathews Memorial Skategarden, will be located at 4415 Morganford! Stay tuned and we will continue to post our progress as well as meeting times. Thanks out to all who showed up for the last design meeting and Show Me Pools for hosting it!.
The goal of KHVT is to build small skategardens with all types of terrain through out the City so don't get upset if this is not your dream park. We are skaters and understand that you cannot please everybody with the type of money we have. We will however vow to continue to move forward this idea of  a network of skate-able terrain through out the City including everything a skater could ever wanna skate!!! With your support we can make this a reality!!! To enlist in KHVT's volunteer army contact us at

On another awesome note, we now have a copy of the executed lease with the City on the property for $5 a year! We still have to cover a hefty insurance bill, the up keep and the initial build out as well so get ready for some fundraisers and other opportunities to show your support like dedicating a tree in the park or buying an engraved brick for the entrance way.
As always you can make a donation through our pay pal account on the right hand side of our page!!!
