New Skatepark for Indianapolis

We are advocating the construction of a small skatepark in the King Park neighborhood located just north of the downtown area. Indy Skatepark Advocates are seeking funding via the Tony Hawk Foundation Grant in addition to other sources.  We propose a family friendly skatepark that is roughly 5,000-10,000 square feet. We feel that access to safe activities for youth in the neighborhood are limited and could be improved with the construction of a skatepark. This advocacy group is composed of several local and experienced skateboarders,BMX bike riders and neighborhood stakeholders. Please help us in our effort to create awareness of the need for more skateparks in Indianapolis.

  • Andrew Renshaw skateboarding is an excellent outlet for creativity! It gives people at all ages a chance to meet new people and build friendships, express individuality, and exercise both; mind and body. Personally, skateboarding has kept me out of trouble and relieves stress from the everyday life routine, not to mention the life long friends I've made. More places to skate are vital to skateboarders and the city! People travel to skateparks all the time, no matter how far the distance. With more skateparks there will be more of a chance for people to experience what I stated above! It's an all around win/win for skateboarders and the city! Thanks for reading!

  • Mike Janson Very excited to expand outlets for a life-long positive activity in our city. Skateboarding has given me (and very many others around here) nearly everything I know and value today. We base our entire lives off of this thing. We travel all over the country for this thing. Hope to see our scene turn into something greater for everyone! Spread the love, let's build more skateparks!

  • Thomas Storey I would go to it.
