It’s been awhile since you’ve heard from us, but we happy to announce that a skatepark is in Downingtown’s near future. Groundbreaking will be on August 25, 2014. WE NEED YOUR HELP to cover the cost for some additional items that have come up. Misiano Skateparks has done a fantastic job coming up with a design that will work with our DEP restrictions and budget. Check them out!
Here’s a list of things we need to raise funds for. (approximate costs)
- $3,500 = Previous fundraising gap. Donors who pledged funds but didn’t come through.
- $2,000 = Housing for the skatepark crew.
- $2,000 = Miscellaneous construction costs including excavation equipment fuel, revegetation, E&S control measures(extra silt sock) and any other unforeseen costs in this project.
Variable cost of $2,000 if we need to repair any trail damage during construction.
Above our Fundraising Goal
Any additional fundraising above our goal will be given to the Borough for a “skatepark maintenance fund” and any future expansion of the park into a second or third phase. So, if you want to see an expansion of the park in the future please give what you can.
We are also relying on the help of some fantastic local volunteers to help us get the project done.

We’ve been working on this project close to 5 years and accomplished many milestones along the way. We can’t thank everyone enough for already helping us to raise over $31,500 and getting all the approvals/permits for this project.
