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.

Goals for May
We have targeted the existing skatepark within Estabrook Park on Milwaukee's North Side as our initial spot to begin improvements. We are planning to begin constructing a quarterpipe that runs along the NE corner of the park. We have removed the existing ramp that was in this location and cleared the area to begin improvements. First thing that needs to happen is a concrete block wall will have to be built to act as a retaining wall for this feature. If anyone has or would like to donate some CMU block and mortar it would be greatly appreciated. We hope to have a few good features built in this park by the end of the summer. If you would like to help out the effort, please get in contact with us so that everything can be done in a consistent manner. There is a right and a wrong way to build these features and we want to make sure everything is built properly so that it lasts for years to come. I am overloaded with information to distribute at this time so I will be adding more on a daily basis. We are all really excited to make this happen and look forward to teaming up with everyone in the community to bring this to reality.
