The idea behind the The Playground is simple: a space to skateboard year round out of the elements. It started as an idea between a grandson and his grandma and has flourished into project that will provide a year-round refuge for community-members in St. Helens, Oregon and the greater Columbia County community.

The mission of The Playground Indoor Skatepark is to provide experiential learning and civic participation through opportunities in the skateboarding community that encourages inclusivity.


We believe that by providing a space that can be used year around, skateboarders will have a place to build self-confidence, leadership and creativity through lessons, mentoring, and a community gathering place.


Skateparks build and sustain healthy communities. As a gathering place for the community, the skatepark will provide a safe space for, young and old, beginning and skilled, to meet and share experiences.


For many skateboarding youth, the skatepark becomes a home-away-from-home.
