                                      Playground for Action Sports

                       Action sports – like skateboarding and BMX riding – open the door of activity to

                       kids who aren’t necessarily interested in traditional sports. An added bonus is

                       that action sport parks can be built almost anywhere, including forgotten, abandoned

                       brownfield sites, which helps revitalize the area and the community. This discussion

                       will highlight how action sports fit into a community’s programming, strategies for

                       design, and examples from communities across North America to help the

                       audience better understand how action sports can help get more kids off the couch

                       and into parks.
