Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition

  • Poulsbo Parks Commission forms Skatepark Advisory Committee in 2018

  • Skatepark added to Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) in 2019-2024

  • Crossroads Rotary partners with Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition as Fiscal Sponsor

  • Suquamish Foundation Awards the 1st Grant to the Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition for $5,000.00 in 2021

Residents of the small fjord-like Pacific Northwest town of Poulsbo, Washington joined together to create a group by the name of Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition. Working as an advisory group with the City of Poulsbo Parks and Recreation Department, the group's mission is to assist in raising awareness, support, and funds to design and construct a modern, concrete, covered-skatepark to replace the city's two-decade old wooden ramp park from the late 1990's. The vision is for a free, inviting, year-round ridable, park with sustainable design features and artwork inspired by the community's tribal and nordic legacies. The park will serve as a gathering place that encourages creativity, activity, resilience, and community.

Crossroads Rotary is honored to act as the Fiscal Sponsor for the Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition and recognizes the importance of having year-round active recreational and social spaces for our community and for today's and future generations and believes in the positive impact skateparks provide for communities.

We Are

Poulsbo Skatepark Coalition is a skateboarding community-based organization and advisory group. Our lives have been positively impacted by the skateboard community, skateparks, and supportive cities and we want to create a new park for Poulsbo, Washington and Kitsap County Residents for current and future generations!

Community Involvement

We're working to help the City of Poulsbo build a state-of-the-art concrete covered skatepark that is rideable year-round and lasts for decades to come! Our coalition members have hosted open-invite community skate jams and contests, organized park clean-ups, and built new features at the old park, participated in community events and festivals, and collaborates with the Poulsbo Parks and Recreation Department on milestones for the effort.

Helping Others

We aim to help the City of Poulsbo create a place for skaters, families, and skatepark enthusiasts to ride year-round, gather for connection, encouragement, and for a place that kids can ride safely. We're helping work with the City, community, and organizations towards selecting a site, a design, and fundraising for the future park. Our coalition team continues to plan programming, community outreach, and collaboratively advising the city as we push forward together!

Park Vision

Skateparks have transformative power for personal growth and community development. Our vision is to help foster a vibrant and inviting destination for Poulsbo and Kitsap residents to be able to ride year-round in a state-of-the-art, covered, concrete, and modern skatepark. Communities across the Northwest, Nation, and World recognize the value skateparks offer as long-lasting recreational facilities, supporting unstructured play, and as community gathering spaces. A few examples of parks that portray and inspire our effort and vision are shared below!  

The Challenge and Need

A City without a Skatepark

Donate and volunteer to help the transformation of Poulsbo and its skatepark journey from its humble beginnings to its future state.

 

The old wooden ramp at Raab Park stood for over 20 years until Spring of 2024 when it was dismantled. Today, our community is without a skatepark, but we are determined to change that.

 

Join us in rebuilding a new space for skaters of all ages and skill levels to enjoy year-round!

(Above)
The old Raab Park skatepark served the community for its entire lifespan and was at the onset of 1st generation skateparks here in Kitsap County. But the wood ramps required constant maintenance due to the harsh, wet, and dark location and weather and become hazardous with screws and metal rusting and popping out and wood rotting.  

(Left)
The park was torn down in the Spring of 2024 and now just the concrete remains of the original pyramid and most recent manual pad which the Coalition helped build around 2021/22.

Poulsbo Needs a New Skatepark that is Covered, Concrete, and State-of-the-Art in a Visible and Accessible Site!
