Walton Skate Society
Promote the development of safe skateboarding infrastructure in Walton County to include a Regional Skate Park, smaller Neighborhood Skate Parks, and community Micro Parks with “skateable” park infrastructure.
Work with existing scenic corridor, cycling, and multi-use path, groups to research and advocate for path expansions to increase public accessibility, and encourage healthy activity.
Act as a liaison between the many civic groups and government entities that have an interest in safe skateboarding in Walton County.
Develop children’s educational programs regarding skateboard construction, park engineering, and maintenance as well as after school and summer day camp programs for local and regional schools.
Identify opportunities to provide skateboarding opportunities, equipment and accessible facilities to underprivileged and at-risk youth in Walton County.
Work with local and regional business leaders and schools to provide skateboard opportunities and training for area students.
Walton Skate Society and our community secured a commitment from the Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) to provide approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of space at Helen McCall Park located off Highway 98 in South Walton. The original masterplan for the park called for a skate park. This was put on the back-burner while other mainstream sports facilities were built. Due to the efforts of the Walton Skate Society, it is now a reality. The commitment from the BCC ensured our community will have a fun, clean and safe area for visitor and locals to enjoy. Helen McCall Park offers parking, clean restrooms, playground and various sports fields. A skate park is a perfect edition to the facility.
