TONY HAWK BRINGS A SKATEPARK TO DETROIT

Riley's dad in a three-way partnership with contemporary art gallery Library Street Collective, Bedrock real estate, and the Cranbrook Art Museum has plans to open a skatepark on August 16. 

The 4,600-square-foot park will be free and open to the general public and will host an art exhibit by Ryan McGinness starting on Nov. 17. In addition, the park will also serve as a space for additional cultural programs.

The construction of the park will be overseen by George Leichtweis of local skate shop Modern Skate & Surf, an icon of the Detroit skate scene since the '70s.
