Skateparks around the world are now bringing public space to those who lack access to such parks. This amazing story of bringing spaces to those in need not only benefits the individuals who use the skateparks, but also the skatepark community as a whole. What’s more, these types of resources have a tremendous ripple effect, helping communities all over, from immigrants to those going through an extended hospitalisation.
