We are a UK based non-profit organisation whose aim is to see more quality concrete skateparks built. We offer advice, support and guidance to community groups and local authorities wishing to get a skatepark built within their community.

The aim of this site is to be a complete information resource for skatepark advocates on the entire skatepark process. If you want to know how to get a skatepark built in your town, you've come to the right place.

We believe that skateparks should be built the right way, constructed the right way with no corners cut. Cheapest is not best in skatepark construction. If you want the right skatepark, built correctly so that it will last for years, then you need to be fully involved in the process. If the cheapest supplier is chosen - you will end up with an extremely unsatisfactory final product with a significantly shortened lifespan. Talk to us first.

This site is a work in progress, so if you can't find the answer you need. get in touch by email skateparkfoundation@gmail.com, or via Facebook or Twitter.
