Building Communities

Here at Hardcore Skateparks, we understand that skateparks and other action sport facilities are more than just recreational landscapes; but environments that support, benefit, and grow local communities. Some of the most notable benefits of having a local skatepark includes a reduction in juvenile crime, improved physical and mental health in individuals of all ages, and a decrease in local property damage. A skatepark improves its surrounding area in more ways than could be counted, but most importantly it creates a supportive community that fosters self-improvement in all involved; regardless of age, race, or social class. These close-knitted groups who skate together provide neighborhoods with a true sense of family and brings strangers together through a similar, shared passion.

The impact of building a community around skateboarding and other action sports cannot be overstated. The social culture at nearly every skatepark is extremely inclusive towards individuals of all ages, races, and backgrounds. This culture creates diverse groups of like-minded friends who would not have met otherwise. These inclusive groups teach and motivate one another to learn new tricks, overcome physical obstacles, and surpass mental barriers. The communities built around these activities create life-long friendships and positive role models.

Furthermore, the construction of a skatepark can be a life-changing addition to many at-risk youths’ lives. A local skatepark provides a haven where teenagers can safely focus on bettering themselves mentally and athletically, rather than drifting into crime and or other negative activities. Many at-risk youths in low-income areas don’t typically have the resources or interest to participate in traditional team sports; and in turn tend to be attracted to individual activities, like skateboarding. A community skatepark provides a place where individuals can work on perfecting a difficult craft free from the influences of negative activities.
