We help underserved communities create safe and inclusive public skateparks for youth.


The Skatepark Project was established in 2002 by professional skateboarder Tony Hawk to support the development of free, safe and accessible skateparks in underserved communities across the United States, and international programs that enrich the lives of youth through skateboarding.


Domestically, the organization has awarded over $10 million to more than 600 communities in all 50 States, including $4.3 million through its Built to Play Program--a partnership with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation. In addition to funding, The Skatepark Project provides technical assistance, advocacy support and public education targeting youth, skateboarding advocates, local governance and grassroots, community-based organizations.


The organization’s international program has provided technical and financial support to assist youth through the Skateistan educational programs in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa.
