Here is what you can do to get involved with City of Skate and get skateparks built in your community.
Subscribe to the City of Skate Email Newsletter
This is an easy one. Our newsletter is the easiest way to stay up to date with skatepark developments in Minnesota. We only use it when we need to; our goal isn’t to stuff your inbox, but to let you know about things you actually do want to know about.
Find a Project near You—or Start One
Currently there are 35+ Minnesota skatepark projects planned but in need of funding before they can be built. If you want a quality skatepark in your community, get involved.
Our skatepark directory is a list of skatepark projects in progress, from early design and fundraising through skateparks that are open to the public. Maybe there is already a project in your community. If not, the Tony Hawk Foundation has a solid guide to getting a skatepark built. If you decide you want to build one, please let us know so we can help!
Contact Your Representatives
Skateparks get built when local politicians vote for them, so one of the most important things you can do is let your local officials know you want a skatepark built! Believe us—it makes a difference when they hear from their constituents.
If you aren’t sure who to contact, that’s another thing we can help with. Send us a message and we’ll help you contact the right people. Then, let them know how important a skatepark is to you. Maybe even share some of these resources with them.
