Saratoga Springs-based Death Wish Coffee is getting behind the effort to rebuild a skate park in their hometown.

The makers of the “World’s Strongest Coffee” are partnering with ON DECK Saratoga to build a new, concrete skate park in Saratoga Springs. Death Wish is matching donations up to $25,000.

"The skate park and all parks in Saratoga Springs provide gathering spaces for residents to make memories, which makes living and working here a great joy," said Mike Brown, founder of Death Wish Coffee. "We’re honored to have the opportunity to help build the spaces that serve to create these magic moments."

Built in 1989, the Saratoga Skatepark is the state’s oldest. It hasn’t been updated in 20 years. In 2021, Saratoga Springs agreed to allocate $265,000 toward the new skate park, priced at $350,000. ON DECK agreed to fundraise the remaining $85,000, and Death Wish made the decision to do what it could to help.
