Tony Hawk has been in the skating game since the eighties, practically revolutionising skateboarding. It’s not the first time he has opened a skate park of course, but the almost 50 year old Tony has treated his adopted city of Detroit with special artistic care.
Alongside Ryan McGinness, the Birdman has recently opened a skate park, that features artwork made by Ryan. The 4,600-square-foot public skate park with art installation has been opened recently in Detroit and the motifs and colours are wonderfully mixed and the coolest part about it; it’s modular. This makes the park mobile and easy to replace to another area if needed. The park has a spectator area and six skate elements to give that full skateboarding experience.
If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, feel free to kick and push in this dope park. Check out the photos below!
