In the summer of 2023, we got the opportunity to collaborate with local resident group, PlaceMade, in creating a ramp and garden at the intersection of Florence Blvd and Pratt Street, adjacent to King Science Middle School and Kountze Park.


The ramp's mural was brought to life by The Union for Contemporary Art's Action Brigade Youth, with local artist Oria Simonini guiding and overseeing the artistic process.

The ramp was designed and constructed by Forgamere, a local design and building company, in conjunction with Wurst Skateboards, a local skateboarding company.


Furthermore, we sought the expertise of local urban farming groups, Manifest Acres and Healing Roots African Diaspora Garden, to assist in plant selection and lead the charge during our volunteer planting day.


As the ramp neared its completion, a local mother who lost her 14-year-old son in a recent car accident reached out with a desire to both give back to the community and honor her son's memory. The young boy, Caden, had a love for skateboarding. Recognizing Caden's passion, we collectively decided to name the park in his honor, creating a tribute that will carry forward his legacy and love for skateboarding.


Caden’s mother also decided to hold a fundraiser to provide skateboards and helmets to the neighborhood youth in Caden’s honor. Through fundraising, Caden's mother secured the necessary resources for 40 skateboards and 40 helmets for the neighborhood's youth.


Presently, the ramp is open from dawn to dusk for the community to freely use. We host Sk8 Skool sessions at this location every Saturday morning from 9 to 11 a.m. for neighborhood youth and others wanting to learn how to skateboard.
