A public skate park in Hout Bay that caters for all and brings communities together.
EYETHU is a Nguni word meaning “our”. It is also an affirmation of shared ownership or partnership.
The skate park at the new Hout Bay Sports Ground aims to help create a truly public space for both community use and to promote youth development. A space was needed where people can share and experience common interests. A new South African Space. A safe space for all, from all walks of life. Rotary Hout Bay made this community space a reality.
Building a community through public space that caters for all and brings the community together was the Rotary Hout Bay promise by turning the Eyethu Skate Park into reality.
The site is located at the confluence point of three different demographic areas in the centre of Hout Bay, providing an opportunity for integration through the creation of a new South African space where people can share and experience common interests through skating and other sporting activities. The inception of the proposal resulted from a clear increase of underprivileged children who were riding on makeshift skateboards in and around roads, endangering themselves.
