Friends for Skateparks is a Lexington, Kentucky 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It was founded in response to the growing need for additional public skateparks in Lexington. In early 2014, the founding members came together with a dream of building Berry Hill Skatepark, which opened to the public in the summer of 2015. Berry Hill was a success due to the collaboration and partnership between our organization and the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government.
Building on our success, our mission today is to build new skateparks and to rehabilitate, expand and improve our existing skateparks by being a conduit between our community and the City. We will continue to raise awareness and seek support to invest in public skateparks for our community.
