Our Goal

The Waterbury Skatepark Coalition (WSC) is committed to creating a state of the art concrete skatepark in downtown Waterbury, Vermont. The park will be designed and constructed with meticulous attention to detail to optimize accessibility, safety and fun.

With that in mind, the WSC is committed to engaging the Waterbury community in the fundraising, construction and management process to guarantee measurable successful outcomes for everyone involved. The WSC will create a positive, safe environment for users and families to attract them to Waterbury, VT to have a positive impact on the recreation economy for years to come.

Why Skateparks

“Skateparks build and sustain healthy communities. As a gathering place for dedicated, athletic youth, the skatepark provides the forum for visitors young and old, beginning and skilled, to meet and share experiences. For many skateboarding youth, the skatepark becomes a home-away from home.”- Skatepark Project
