On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Games, Saint-Gobain, an official supporter of the global event, is installing its 400 m² skatepark on the La Défense esplanade, the Saint-Gobain Skate Game, which will be open to all during the entire Olympic Games!

To all skateboarding enthusiasts, from July 18th until August 11th, 2024, the Saint-Gobain Skate Game takes over the La Défense esplanade, at the Takis basin! So, whether you are a beginner or experienced skater, able-bodied or with a disability, come and enjoy this skatepark that looks like a giant pinball machine and is accessible to all!

The result of a collaboration

Saint-Gobain created this skatepark with the help of Vincent Matheron, a French skateboarding figure, for the technical part, and Luc Abalo, a triple Olympic handball champion and painter, for the artistic part. This 400 m² space is set up in an iconic location in Paris La Défense with the aim of promoting sports during the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

A skatepark with a lower environmental footprint

If you were already excited at the idea of coming to enjoy this unique place, know that it is virtuous! Designed to limit its environmental footprint, it is the world's first skatepark whose concrete modules were created using 3D printing. Thanks to this innovative technology, the space was made with just the right amount of materials, in order to reduce the use of resources and the production of waste.

Saint-Gobain, a world leader in sustainable construction, designs, produces and distributes materials and services for the habitat and industrial markets. It was in its Weber Beamix plant in Eindhoven (Netherlands), in collaboration with Playgones, Minimum Skatepark and the Pratikable solidarity association, that the Saint-Gobain Skate Game was custom-made.
