PUSH (Public Use Skateparks for Houston) is a grass-roots organization made up of Houston skateboarders, their families, and friends. It was established in the fall of 2004 to facilitate the fundraising (via the Houston Parks Board Inc.) and design for Houston’s first in-ground skatepark, which later became known as the Lee & Joe Jamail Skatepark. Thanks to the help and generosity from the Houston Parks Board Inc., this project broke ground in the fall of 2007, and it opened in June of 2008. The Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark represents the the largest private donations ($2.7 million) ever raised for a public skatepark in the United States. In addition, P.U.S.H.’s volunteers provide regularly scheduled free lessons for novice skateboarders at the Jamail Skatepark . Our primary goal is and will always be to advocate and facilitate more high quality poured-in-place skateparks for the Houston metropolitan area.
