“Hi, I’m  Dr. Nick DiNubile.  I am an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and my son is an avid skateboarder.  For me safety is the biggest priority. He always wears his helmet and all his pads.  Also, when it came time to get a ramp for our driveway, I did my research.  Freshpark was the clear choice.   Freshpark ramps and equipment are so well made.  They are not only solid and sturdy, but are easily assembled and remarkably portable to move about and for storage.

As a company they also do tremendous charity work with a commitment to keeping kids both active and safe especially at risk, inner city children.  If both safety and quality are your priority call Freshpark. “
