Freedom Skate Park: How You Can Support the Creation of Accra's First Skatepark

January 16, 2021


The Freedom Skatepark is on track to be the first skatepark in Accra, Ghana. This project is spearheaded by Surf Ghana, a non-profit based in Accra that uses board sports to empower youth across the country.  

With the skatepark and accompanying amenities, Surf Ghana hopes to create not only a safe space but an economic and community hub that will offer a place for the youth of Accra to play, work, learn, and engage with their peers and the broader community.
