Freedom Skatepark, Jamaica
Located just outside Kingston in Eight Mile Bull Bay, the 1300 sqm Freedom Skate-park is the largest skate-park in Jamaica and the first and only in the capital region. The skate-park itself is located right next the Bull Bay FC, boasts both street and transition features and is designed to cater to all skill levels. On-site you will find a youth center, communal garden and parking space for visitors.
The Freedom Skate-park was built under the direction of Concrete Jungle Foundation in early 2020 by some 40 international and local volunteers. Today we run the Edu-Skate programme and a Loaner Board programme at the park, as well as employ 7 local adolescents.
Edu-Skate is a positive youth development (PYD) programme that utilizes skateboarding, group discussion and community activities to empower and provide positive psychology education to undeserved children aged 6-16. Main group sessions are also complemented by workshops, contests and field trips with the children.
