Commonwealth Skateboarding is a gritty 4,500 square foot indoor concrete skatepark hand-built in 2011 by Jennifer Sherowski, Lance Normine and Evergreen Skateparks in an old stone-cutting warehouse just off of Hawthorne Boulevard, in the heart of Southeast Portland.

In 2013, inspired by a desire to open up a sneaker-centric skate shop in Portland, footwear designer Matt Collins and some friends had the opportunity to acquire Commonwealth. They remodeled the storefront and gallery space into a full-service retail skate and sneaker shop. Commonwealth also offers lessons, even rentals and skate camps.
