The Des Moines Regional Skatepark Committee is pleased to reveal the final design of one of the largest open skateparks in the nation.
This world-class facility at 65,000 square feet is a skateboarder’s dream. Designed by California Skateparks under the direction of Colby Carter, it will be built here in Des Moines with your help! Our goal is to raise $3.5 million in the next 12 months!
The community working together has brought us this far on this exciting project. The project success is attributable to AMOS (A Mid-Iowa Organizing Strategy.) AMOS is a local IAF (Industrial Areas Foundation) broad-based, non-partisan, community organization comprised of 28 community institutions. AMOS believes that ordinary people, working together, can accomplish great things in a democracy and have a say in the destiny of their own community. The work on the skatepark is a testament to the collaboration of AMOS, the Des Moines Regional Skatepark Committee, the Mayor and the City of Des Moines. The Committee was awarded a leadership grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines for the design of the project.
