Ann Arbor Skatepark Endowment Fund
Established in 2008, this endowed fund will provide a permanent source of support for the Ann Arbor Skatepark's continued maintenance, upkeep, any future improvements and upgrades.
To help ensure the park's future maintenance, 10% of gifts made to the special project fund, which supported the design and construction of the skatepark, were used to help build this endowed fund.
The Ann Arbor Skatepark, a state-of-the-art public park for skate boarders, is expected to open at Veterans Memorial Park in Ann Arbor in early Summer 2014. A public place where Ann Arbor's skaters can safely and responsibly practice their sport - the 30,000 square foot skatepark is expected to include a street skating area with stairs, curbs, walls and embankments along with a bowl and lights.
Members of the Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee (AASAC) have been working with the City of Ann Abor, who dedicated the land at Veterans Memorial Park, to build a public skatepark in Arbor, where skate boarders can safely and responsibly practice their sport. For years skateboarding and in-line skating have been banned in downtown Ann Arbor and on U of M's campus, and is largely discouraged on most private property. For skateboarding enthusiasts, the closest skatepark is 25 minutes away in Brighton.
