The art museum in Helsinki had one summer a event for all skateboard lovers. The museum built a skateboard park in one of their floors and let girls and boys rock the halls. Just send a e-mail and if there is still place you could go skateboarding!

Implications - Skateboarding is an old sport that has been more recognized over the past few years. Skateparks are popping up all over the place so that boarders have a safe place to work on their skills. Providing cool places for this demographic is important and could benefit businesses that support the sport like the featured museum who created a skatepark inside its building.
