Thanks to pro skater, Tony Hawk’s foundation, Detroit has a new skate park in the southwest area of the city.  The park is part of a multi-year renovation to add basketball courts, baseball fields, a skatepark and an amphitheather in the near future.

The skatepark was the latest addition to open on the first Saturday of the summer (June 23).  It is reported that the skatepark alone cost about $800,000 inside the newly renovated park.
