POP's Philly skatepark.

Last summer I went to Philly and met some guys that work/volunteer for a company like Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. The local community center was getting shut down and the neighborhood decided they needed to keep it around. It is a place were kids go after school to keep them out of trouble. The neighborhood uses the building for meetings as well as many other things. The basketball courts hadn't been used in years so some local skateboarders took on the project of "restoring" them. With money from the city, local skateshops, as well as THE TONY HAWK FOUNDATION they were able to get money to build this really cool park. Because Willy Akers is the man and knows everybody they let us skate the half finished project. Really fun AND simple AND cheap. Volunteers offered their weekends to finish the project... DIY approved.

Here is a moving story about the park. Read it then sign our petition. This is possible lets get it done!


Grand Opening and story



ledge/manual pad. In the background you can see a bowl.

The coping was weird on this spine at first. It ended up being really fun even with the water.
