Yangon, Myanmar

About the project

Throughout November of 2015 we were lucky enough to be apart of a team of international volunteers building Yangon's first and only public skatepark. The project was headed up by non-profit organization Make Life Skate Life and over a period of just 3-weeks we were able to complete construction of the 400m2 park.

The park was a massive hit with local skateboarders and community members alike, all flocking to the site night and day to get a glimpse of and experience something new and special. There is also now a full-time local skateboarding teacher on-site to manage the space along with lending out free skateboarding equipment inclusive of safety gear and skate shoes plus teaching classes to the youth.
