While it is true that Henderson, Kentucky currently has two public skateparks, both are what are commonly referred to as “temporary,” or “pre-fab” skateparks. These types of setups are common throughout the country, but the drawbacks are numerous – poor planning/spacing, and a limited lifespan for the equipment are the most common complaints.
We have two objectives we aim to accomplish with the money we raise for The Henderson Skatepark Fund:
- Build a FREE indoor skatepark that is open to the public, but privately managed, maintained, and periodically updated.
- Build a spacious, FREE, permanent (concrete,) outdoor skatepark that caters to ‘all wheels’ (skateboards, BMX, scooters, inline skates, quad skates, wheelchairs, etc.)
Securing the appropriate funding for anything to better the local skateboarding community is extremely difficult. The process usually takes years, and requires hefty and tenacious fundraising initiatives.
We’re asking you to help us build an open charitable fund. This fund will eventually be used for one or more programs aimed at providing Henderson, KY with a perfectly usable, accessible, free skate park. We will devote ourselves to seeing this process reach a desirable outcome for all, and we will use this page to be 100% transparent in the funding process, as well as any spending that occurs. We will also reach out to our donors from time to time, in order to best represent YOUR wants and needs.
Please, if you can find it within your means, use one of the options below to make a donation toward a better future for our local and regional youth. You can either make a one time donation, or make it a recurring, monthly donation. If you or your organization is interested in making a contribution in excess of the pre-defined amounts, please contact us.
