Ann Arbor Skatepark Fund
The Ann Arbor Skatepark Fund supports the construction of a free public skatepark where Ann Arbor's skaters 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.
Members of the Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee (AASAC) have been working with the City of Ann Abor to build a public skatepark in Arbor, where skate boarders can safely and responsibly practice their sport.
The City of Ann Arbor dedicated land at Veterans Memorial Park for a 30,000 square foot skatepark that will include a street skating area with stairs, curbs, walls and embankments along with a bowl and lights. Construction is now underway.
