Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money to build The Friarsgate Skatepark, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this because that means so much to us.
Our project will provide a safe accessible inclusive space for outdoor recreation combating the effects of isolation during the pandemic. The Town of Irmo and Friarsgate Skatepark Committee have partnered to build a community skatepark for all athletes, adaptive athletes, first-time athletes, and curious locals wanting to try. Children who participate in outdoor activity have stronger mental health, fewer behavioral problems, better cognitive function, and learn self-discipline.

This park should increase property values by 5% to 17% in the local neighborhood. By renovating this green space, our community will attract homebuyers who desire access to recreation to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Homes in a desirable area with accessible inclusive outdoor recreation attract a more stable workforce for businesses and vested people in the community.

Our skatepark project will be located at the new Rawls Creek Park in the Friarsgate neighborhood. The skatepark will be a concrete cast-in-place built by a reputable design-build company.  The Rawls Creek Park is located on a total of 9 acres and will have several amenities. The Town of Irmo is funding the infrastructure of the entire park. This will include sidewalks, drainage, lighting, parking lot, bathrooms, and upkeep. This park will be accessible to over 3,000 children in the neighborhood. This skatepark will provide our community with outdoor recreation that is accessible for free to everyone including physically disabled/ adaptive athletes. This park will increase property values, increase revenue for local businesses, attract tourism, and improve the overall health of the community.
