Invaluable resource and entertaining.

We just started our journey to develop more skateparks in our hometown. We’re about 2 months in and we’ve gained some real momentum in such a short time. We heard about this POD through The Skatepark Foundation’s IG. We’ve used the Project Skatepark Development Guide as framework to execute our plan. But now that I’ve found this podcast & listened to a few eps, it’s reassuring to know that we’re on the right track. I’ve shared it with my core group and we are motivated more than ever to get this done.

Thank you all for your guidance!

Makes all the difference!

Have found these podcast invaluable as we go through the process of developing a skatepark. Listen to them not only once but again as you reach each phase of your project. Super helpful!

Informative and entertaining

Not only an excellent resource to help get skateparks built in your community, but by extension, lessons in civics, organizational skills, fundraising, non-profits, and more!
