Abstract:
Social capital support and a sense of connection with place are recognized components of human wellbeing. This study examines the social capital support health benefits to be derived from skateboarding in skate-parks. A content analysis of 35 skateboarders’ survey responses revealed the existence of four benefits, namely, establishing new and reconnecting with old friendships; bonding to a friendship group, gaining peer respect and status; and increased opportunities to interact with people. Collectively, these benefits expanded the skateboarders’ social horizons by providing increased opportunities to gain community recognition and acceptance. The implications for planning integrated communities through enhancing skateboarding opportunities are discussed.
