Thank You!

the project

To clean up and finish construction of the DIY skatepark at Rozelle and Lamar in the Rozelle Annesdale neighborhood. The site is being converted into the most unique community designed skatepark in the country. So far, all ramps have been poured one ramp at a time and local artists have begun to paint murals on the park and surrounding buildings. We need your help to scale up concrete work and finish the park to create something uniquely Memphis.

the steps

The project has been self directed for years with local skaters pouring the ramps themselves one bag of concrete at a time. The same team that has meticulously built the park will continue to build additional ramps to finish the concrete work. Forms will be built over a weekend then a concrete truck will be scheduled to pour multiple ramps at one time while the crew can be on site to work the concrete. Additional forms will be poured to help with water retention, as well as some landscaping to be added at the request of the neighborhood. 


why we're doing it

Because it needs to be done. Memphis needs more community driven sites and this is the perfect example of a neighborhood coming together to build something awesome!
