Donate to Lincoln City Skatepark4

Lincoln City was the skatepark Dreamland Skateparks was created to build. Thrasher Magazine called it the gnarliest skatepark in America and that was before phase II and III. Dreamland has donated a lot of time and materials over the years and the locals have put in a lot of labor. They’re working on phase four – a snake run that runs from the upper park down the hill ending in a big Klamath Falls-style catcher’s mitt bowl just above the amoeba pool replica. It’s going to be amazing. Funds are running low for the project and here’s a chance to help. We’ve set up a benefit fund.
