Within the next two years, construction will begin on Wasena Bridge, eliminating Wasena Skatepark that exists underneath it. While we're sad to see Wasena Skatepark go, it's also time for Roanoke to invest in an updated park for our skaters. As you can see below, the park in it's current state is very unsafe and practically unskatable!


In 2017, the Roanoke Skatepark Initiative worked diligently to reach our initial goal of raising $20,000. We are proud to say that with the help of our generous supporters, we surpassed our goal.  Over the past year, we have seen members of the skate community and beyond come together to support a cause they believe in: skateboarding.From youth at a local summer camp who were just learning to skate, to parents who are inspired by the impact skating has made in their children’s lives, to older skaters who still love skate culture and carry it with them every day- it’s clear that skateboarding is a way of life.

We are currently partnering with the City of Roanoke to discuss plans and budgets, but while we're doing the behind the scenes work, we are still in pursuit of raising funds for our project. Please help us work towards our Roanoke Valley Gives Day goal of $5,000! Every little bit counts...even a dollar! Roanoke Needs a Place to Skate and you can help us get one!
