Unfortunately Amsterdam does not have a professional skate park. This is why Skatemates have launched this website: to work on making such a big concrete skatepark possible! All countries in Europe have built large, concrete skateparks that cater to the needs of both skaters, BMX-ers and bystanders. The Urbansports-zone is a professional skatepark designed inside of a public park so that people who do not skate will also enjoy staying for a while, just to have a look & hang out.
Would you like a large, public concrete skatepark in Amsterdam?

SUPPORT SKATEMATES!

You can do this by helping our Do-It-Yourself project with some funds that we will use to expand our DIY park. You can also help by liking and sharing our Facebookpage, by posting reactions to the items that we publish, and of course by sharing this website with as many people as you can! If it is possible to build large, professional skateparks in cities like Antwerp, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Frankfurt, Helsingør, Kortrijk, London, Malmo, Paris, Stockholm and Roskilde then why wouldn’t it be possible in Amsterdam?

Skatemates has written a plan that explains how a professional skatepark Amsterdam can be realized and why it is a good investment. We would like to invite the responsible policymakers for a study visit to the beautiful Faelledparken skatepark in Copenhagen and Stapelbaddsparken in Malmo. We are convinced that once people see how well such a large public skatepark operates one automatically understands that Amsterdam also needs an Urbansportszone!
