ny Grant Recipients
Since 2002, the Tony Hawk Foundation has awarded 505 grants to help build free, public skateparks in low-income communities across the U.S. Currently, 420 of those parks are open and serving over 4.5-million youth annually.
The Public Skatepark Development Guide, the indispensable handbook for public-skatepark advocates, is now available in an updated and improved second edition. First published in 2007 by the Tony Hawk Foundation, Skaters For Public Skateparks, and the International Association of Skateboard Companies, the ultimate guide for community-skatepark advocates was available for free, and supplies quickly disappeared. The new 128-page second edition features updated information and expanded chapters, including skatepark vision, advocacy, fundraising, design, and management, plus several supplements and visual aids.
