Leaving A Legacy – The Barb Iverson Skate Plaza

Honoring a beloved middle school teacher of thirty years, the Barb Iverson Skate Plaza in Sioux Falls, SD is a 20,000 sqft state-of-the-art all-wheel park that will carry on Ms. Iverson’s legacy of advocacy, community building, and compassion for years to come.

With her heart for educating and inspiring countless individuals to celebrate personal self-expression, along with the promotion of learning and growth in safe spaces, this namesake park is a fitting addition to the greater Sioux Falls community.

We had the privilege of working alongside Let’s Skate, a local organization formerly known as the Sioux Falls Skatepark Association (SFSA) formed in 2016, whose mission is to build community through skateboarding by advocating and fundraising for the new park, offering after school programming, leading statewide community outreach and much more. Their initiative, dating back to outreach with our own Kanten Russell in 2017, paired with their incredible fundraising efforts, reflects their passion for changing the perception of skateboarding and ensured their community’s dreams of having a park came to fruition. Without them, the realization of the Barb Iverson Memorial Skatepark would not have been possible.

The last 8 years of planning and development has been a collective effort and we would like to thank the City of Sioux Falls, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, and Let’s Skate for allowing us to play a role in this meaningful legacy project.

There is a lot to celebrate in Sioux Falls and we hope you will join us at the park’s official grand opening on July 13th, 2024.
