The skatepark will be open to the public and subject to rules and regulations set forth by the City of Carpinteria.
The Carpinteria Skate Foundation's Mission...
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 comprised of lifelong Carpinteria residents who care about our town and are working to make it better.
Our organization was formed to educate the public on the benefits of public multi-use skateparks and to raise funds to build a public multi-use skatepark in Carpinteria. Currently, there is no public skatepark in Carpinteria for the public and youth to enjoy.
We expect it will take approximately three to six years to raise adequate funds, acquire land, and complete the design and construction of the multi-use skatepark."
We have been working with the City to find a suitable location while considering all the community needs.
The most important reason is for our youth. By providing a place for young individuals to be active, it fosters in them the confidence and healthy living that enables a positive lifestyle. A skate park also enhances our community attractiveness, which will secure economic vitality through the tourism it generates.
