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.

Saturday Afternoon @ Estabrook

We are planning to start laying some block in the NE corner of the park on Saturday afternoon around 1. We are still looking for additional funds for mortar and block or donations of just materials would be great! We need to get this block wall built so we can start packing fill and forming to pour some crete! If you want to help out this weekend, just shoot me a message or post on our FB page. Maybe we can all enjoy a cold beer and the new beer garden after all the hard work is done!

Good Response

We spent Saturday down at McKinley park for the 105 Days of Summer Celebration and were very pleased with the response we received. We were able to put ourselves out there and bring awareness to our cause. Everyone we talked to had a very positive response to our efforts and had some great suggestions for ways to spread awareness about our cause. Plan on seeing our presence increase around town as more people join our cause. We now have an army of volunteers ready to do work, but are a little short on the funds to make anything happen. If you haven't bought one of the RideMKE t-shirts yet, please stop by you local skateshop and pick one up, all of the profits from these shirts goes directly toward building material. Also make sure you "Like" our Facebook page so that you can stay updated on our events and progress.

FYI - Did you know that the City of West Allis is in the planning stages of a public skatepark? How is it that West Allis is so far ahead of Milwaukee on this? Please help us make a push to bring Milwaukee up to par.
