FDR Skatepark

Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park
1800 Pattison Ave Under I-95
Philadelphia, PA 19145

FDR Skatepark is like nowhere else on earth. Where else can you build something yourself, tie a couple of bottle rockets to your skateboard, and light up the night testing it out with a few friends? Thousands visit every year, and hundreds work to maintain it and keep adding new challenges to its landscape.

If you want to learn how to build concrete skateparks - bring a shovel and a strong back and ask how you can help. Volunteers are always welcome.
