NEWS RELEASE :

Perry Harvey Sr. Park Skateboard Bowl, aka “Bro Bowl”, listed on the National Register of Historic Places

The Perry Harvey Sr. Park Skateboard Bowl, commonly referred to as the “Bro Bowl”, has been formally recognized for its historical significance by the National Park Service. On October 7, 2013 the Bro Bowl was officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Due to the efforts of the Skateboarding Heritage Foundation, Surfrider Foundation, Florida Skate Museum, the Bowl Bros, and thousands of supporters worldwide, this milestone achievement has been realized. The Bro Bowl is the first structure to be added to the National Register of Historic Places for its historical integrity with regard to skateboarding. We would like to offer our most sincere thanks to all who have supported the campaign, and look forward to preserving other structures and sites which possess historical and cultural value related to skateboarding. Thanks to the diligent efforts of Shannon Bruffett and the Skateboarding Heritage Foundation, a new door has been opened for the future preservation of skateboarding history and culture in the United States.
