Ryan Sheckler and The Sheckler Foundation celebrated the expansion of the first public skatepark in New Orleans’ history. COPING MECHANISM pushed for two years to get Parisite DIY Skatepark legalized but now it’s New Orleans’ first public skatepark – designed, built and run by skateboarders. Parisite DIY was ready for its next build, but needed help to finalize one last crucial part of the park: the coping.
As the Sheckler Foundation’s 7th “Be the Change” beneficiary, Ryan presented Parisite DIY Skatepark with support and a $10,000 financial grant to help implement quality steel coping and other metal work to create a public skatepark in New Orleans that will last decades.
