Skateboarding icon Tony Hawk is teaming up with partners to bring a brand new skate park to Downtown Detroit.

Tony Hawk will be overseeing the plans to open a new skate park that will officially open in Downtown Detroit on August 16th. The park will be located on the corner of Farmer and Monroe in Downtown and will be the first of its kind in Detroit.

The skate park will not only be a great place for kids to be active and skate, but it will also double as a performance space for artists to feature their work. Admission to the skate park will be free and will feature a total of six skateable elements and will cover 4600 square feet.
