Purpose: The Primary Mission Of The Tony Hawk Foundation Is To Promote High Quality, Public Skateparks In Low-income Areas Throughout The United States. While We Realize That Not Every Area Can Afford To Build Big, Expensive Skateparks, We Feel Strongly That Public Skateparks Should Be Designed And Constructed By Experienced Contractors. We Also Believe That Local Officials Should Treat Public Skateparks The Same Way They Treat Public Basketball Courts Or Tennis Courts, Meaning That Anyone May Show Up And Use Them Anytime, Unsupervised. The Foundation Primarily Considers Skatepark Projects That: Are Designed And Built From Concrete By Qualified And Experienced Skatepark Contractors. Include Local Skaters Throughout The Planning, Fundraising, And Design Process. Are In Low-income Areas And/or Areas With A High Population Of "at-risk" Youth. Can Demonstrate A Strong Grassroots Commitment To The Project, Particularly In The Form Of Fundraising By Local Skateboarders And Other Community Groups. Have A Creative Mix Of Street Obstacles (rails, Ledges, Stairs, Etc.) And Transition/vert Terrain (quarterpipes, Bowls, Halfpipes, Etc.) Donít Require Skaters Or Their Parents To Sign Waivers. Encourage Skaters To Look After Their Own Safety And The Safety Of Others Without Restricting Their Access To The Park Or Over-regulating Their Use Of It. Are Open During Daylight Hours, 365 Days A Year. Donít Charge An Entrance Fee. Are In Areas That Currently Have No Skateboarding Facilities.
