AKWESASNE SKATEPARK

Shé:kon | Bienvenue | Welcome!

A world-class skatepark in our community

This new, safe space enables our youth to move their bodies and clear their minds.

The skatepark is a perfect addition to our community - especially at a time of need - to boost mental and physical health coming out of COVID-19. We enjoy seeing the smiling faces from all of our visitors, near and far. We can't wait to see what the future holds for our youth, quite possibly a future Olympian!

– Abram Benedict, Grand Chief MCA

The Akwesasne Skatepark is a 9,600-square-foot recreational area that serves skateboarding, rollerblading, biking, scooter-riding, and wheelchair users from in and around the community.

Our magnificent skatepark was designed and constructed by the extremely talented and professional team at Papillon Skateparks.

🛹 The Skateboard Project

is an initiative that aims to promote Indigenous artwork, physical activity, and collaboration between cultural centers across multiple Indigenous communities.

In its second year, KahnawĂ :ke, KanehsatĂ :ke, Kenhtè:ke, Akwesasne and Six Nations came together to create 7 skateboards graphics showcasing the range of styles and cultural imagery. Two artists from Akwesasne participated this year. Joseph King was commissioned by the NNATC and Ian Clute was commissioned by MCA’s Department of Economic Development.

Skateboard culture values inclusivity, individuality, creativity, and freedom and blending these with Indigenous traditions has created a project that connects communities through local art and skateboarding.
