As a mobility company and in line with its eight-year worldwide partnership with the International Olympic and Paralympic Committees, Toyota launched the ‘Start Your Impossible’ global campaign that reflects the Olympic and Paralympic spirit of encouragement, challenge and progress.

As part of this mobility initiative and to unlock the power of the wheel to transform the way people interact with each other and the world around them, Toyota has partnered with Rome’s Bunker (BNKR) State Park to introduce a Hybrid Skatepark.

The Bnkr Toyota Skatepark is the first accessible wheel park that brings together both adaptive and non-adaptive wheeled action sports into a single facility that is more than just a skatepark. The park brings together several wheeled sports, including BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross), the newest Olympic sport Skateboarding and one of the youngest action sports on the planet, WCMX (WheelChair Moto Cross).

Designed with the needs of athletes with physical impairment in mind, the park aims to drive social inclusion, urban regeneration and help create new mixed sporting communities. Whether through the provision of specialist WCMX equipment allowing wheelchair-based athletes to try the sport for the first time or the design and build of new accessible ramps, Toyota has focused on removing all possible barriers to participation. This way of working brings to life the brand’s belief that when we are free to move anything is possible.
