The Anacortes Skate Park Improvement Project is a non profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to the rebuilding and future maintenance of the Anacortes Skate Park(Ben Root). The Anacortes community has presented to the Anacortes Planning Commission and City Council a tentative vision for the improvement of the current park, in cooperation with Grindline, the Anacortes Parks Foundation, and the City of Anacortes Parks and Recreation department, and Advisory Committee. The Project, with a budget of $550,000 – $600,000 to improve the existing park. Currently we have received a grant for $11,500 and are continuing to do fundraising and look into applying for future grants.
Our mission is to support our community and youth by building a new and improved park where our existing Anacortes Skate Park is. One that will be well respected and maintained. This park will enable us to support the importance of good pass times, hobbies, and passions in our future generations. To instill strong values in our youth through the art of skateboarding and the sense of community it brings. Not to mention to be a gathering place for families and people of all ages who love this sport.
