The need for an indoor skatepark in Fort Wayne, Indiana is real, very real. The lack of outdoor activities in the winter makes the area skateboarders and BMX’ers very restless. 3 Years ago with the help of a local non-for-profit organization called “The Framework”, this vision became reality. An indoor facility known as “The New Republic Skatepark” opened its doors to the public in the fall of 2012.
As of July 1, 2014 the non-for-profit lost it’s lease and simply could not keep up with the constant search for people, organizations, or companies who are willing to donate money to help keep the place alive. The park had tried to incorporate a music venue, a community center, Skate the Cross (A Type of Sunday School), and even a church for misfits that had service every single Sunday.
