Addis Skatepark is currently building Ethiopia's first skatepark at the Besrate Gabriel Kebele Youth Center in central Addis Ababa. Local youth are encouraged to join the build, learn from our team of over 60 international skatepark builders, and help create their own community skatepark. Once the skatepark opens on April 16th, a free on-site loaner program will make skateboarding equipment accessible to everyone.
