Forestville Youth Park Skatespot
Join the Forestville Skatespot Committee and the Forestville Youth Park in our second annual 5K/10K Fun Run!
The park Board is working with the Skatepark committee to raise funds to build a “skatespot” adjacent to the Park property (in the next few years). They are holding several fundraisers, including a “Fun Run” in April.
Ellery Kuntz is leading this effort to get a safe place for youth to skate.
My Name Is Ellery Kuntz and I am an El Molino High School student with a life long passion for skateboarding. Over a year and a half ago, I approached a non profit organization, the Forestville Youth Park, on behalf of my dream – building a community skatespot. Forestville has been my hometown my entire life and I have participated in activities it offers, such as Little League baseball, and other sports through El Molino High School. As I got older, I began focusing on self competitive activities rather than organized sports. As a passionate skateboarder, I knew Forestville would greatly benefit from a skatepark, whether by generating community involvement from those who normally may not take an interest, or by bringing in families that are both local or from other areas to enjoy skating. This project not only will benefit Sonoma’s West County Communities, but all skateboarders, kids who need a welcoming hangout spot, and those who have not yet found their passion.
