RideMKE has been established as a non-profit organization committed to the development of sustainable concrete skateparks within Milwaukee County. 100% of our efforts go directly to constructing FREE public skateparks within the Milwaukee community. Our plan is to organize a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) effort and build new structures as the money becomes available. We are always looking for more community involvement, so if you are looking to donate some of your time to help out please contact us.

Busy Weekend

There are a lot of events going on this upcoming weekend and we are going to attempt to attend everything. It has been posted on here before, but we are going to continue promoting the 105 Year Milwaukee County Parks Celebration taking place at McKinley Park on the lakefront on Saturday. We will have a tent sent up down there so make it a point to get out to the lakefront and stop by to see what we have going on. We need to spread the word about our efforts for skateparks in Milwaukee County and this is going to be a great platform for that. This movement is starting to get a good head of steam and we are being contacted by more and more people everyday, but we need to keep it going so that it doesn't fizzle out.

On another very exciting note, the new Beer Garden in Estabrook Park is planning to open up on Friday! This is located at the convenience station just to the north of the skatepark. We will be getting there around 4:30 Friday afternoon and plan on having an informal meeting/brainstorm session for the skatepark. Try to stop by and enjoy a couple cold ones with us and find out what the plans are going forward. This is a great opportunity to support other park activities and possibly network for future fundraisers to take place at the park.

Sunday we are tentatively planning a morning build session. It will depend on our ability to raise some funds between now and then to come up with the money for some more block and mortar. If you can help out at all with this please let us know. We have the donation button on the blog and donation buckets set up at the shops in town and will also have one at our tent on Saturday. We will continue to update on here and FB for activities taking place on Sunday so stay tuned.

Once we can get the first few pieces built it will create a good buzz and help us to keep things going, we just need all the help we can get to make that happen. All efforts are greatly appreciated.
