World-Class City Needs World-Class Fun!

What promotes healthy living, community involvement and builds competitive sports skills?

Local skateparks!

What town has the opportunity to bring world-renowned designer Dreamland Skateparks to build a world-class skatepark?

Lexington!

You have the opportunity to help Lexington break ground on a new attraction that could bring visitors from around the world, promote physical and social health and wellness in our youth and revitalize a local public park.  All we are asking you to do is Move Your Feet!

The city of Lexington has already committed $500,000, but we’re not stopping there.

It costs $30 to develop one square foot of the new skatepark.  How many feet can you move with your donation? What can you build?

Local nonprofit, Friends for Skateparks, set a goal to raise an additional $500,000 to create a world-class, destination attraction built by Dreamland Skateparks—widely recognized as a leader for epic skatepark designs that attract visitors from around the world.

In addition to the skatepark centerpiece, the park will also feature a new walking trail in addition to its state-of-the-art playground and basketball and tennis courts. A portion of the park will also be made ADA accessible, allowing for sport wheelchairs to enjoy the benefits of Lexington’s next entertainment destination.

We can’t do this without you! We need you to pledge to Move Your Feet and help grow the Berry Hill Skatepark.   How many feet can you move? 1 square foot?  100?

We know that Lexington is already an amazing town full of tremendously dedicated citizens, and now we need you to help us show it!  Let’s show the world what one town can do when we Move our Feet!

UPDATE!!!


Friends, we have several exciting updates INCLUDING the Berry Hill Skatepark designs from Dreamland Skateparks!  

We could not be more excited to share them with you but there are a few things we need you to know: 

  • It is now crunch time and we cannot do this without you.  We need you to pledge to Move Your Feet and help grow Lexington's next skatepark.  If you know anyone in the country who is a skater or skatepark supporter, please share this project and let them know that Lexington will soon be home to the country’s next world-class skatepark.
  • The final design is for a $1 million skatepark and is broken out into five phases.  Currently there has been more than $585,000 set aside for this project. This is enough money to do phase I and we are making great strides towards securing phase II. How much skatepark we get depends on how much money we raise.  
  • Our Indiegogo campaign will be running for the next 11 days and will close on June 23, 2014.  Please take a moment to make a donation.  Every $1 donated helps us move closer to our goal.
Earn Free Passes to Lexington's Urban Ninja Project!

To help grow our park our friends at the Lexington Urban Ninja Project have signed on as a Friends for Skateparks partner. Everyone who makes a donation to our Indiegogo campaign will receive two free passes to the Urban Ninja Project. 


And now for the long-awaited designs!
