Roanoke Needs a Place to Skate!

Wasena Skatepark is dilapidated, outdated and practically unusable for skateboarders in Roanoke City. We started the Roanoke Skatepark Initiative because we feel that the youth in Roanoke deserve to a place to skate with each other in safe, clean, positive environment. In order to begin the process of getting a new park built, we need to show interested parties that there is a need and desire for a new park! Please show your support for the Roanoke Skatepark Initiative and help our community show its youth that they matter!

Skateparks not only provide a safe place for youth of all ages to pursue an athletic activity that they love, but skateparks can also serve as an opportunity for social and economic growth in our community. It is a proven fact that when youth are given the opportunity to engage in recreational activities, the occurrences of juvenile delinquency, crime and other behavioral problems drop dramatically.  

Tell the City of Roanoke that we need a place to skate!
