Skate Pearland is working hard to bring a skatepark to the community.

Skateboarding is one of the most popular recreational activities for kids between the ages of 6 and 18. But for one 44-year-old Pearland resident, it’s a lifelong passion.

Darren Evans is a member of Skate Pearland, an organization focused on raising funds to build a new skatepark in the Pearland community – not just for the thrill of jumping ramps and half-pipes, but to bring kids off dangerous streets and parking lots.
