Local skaters are building New Orleans’ FIRST public skatepark–join us!
What’s the largest U.S. city without a skatepark?
But that’s changing! And it’s thanks to a bunch of skaters who refused to give up.
They were so tired of begging the city for a skatepark, they went ahead and built their own: the Peach Orchard. It was instantly legendary, but it didn’t last. A bulldozer sent by the railroad flattened it in minutes.
So the skaters built another park. This time, they built on city land. And for a minute, it looked like history was about to repeat itself: the city was talking about knocking it down. But then something amazing happened.
