Anyone who has been a part of the Skatepark process knows it is typically not a fast one. Stephanie Murdock, President of Skatepark of Baltimore has been working on the Baltimore Skatepark project for over 7 years. For the past two years, Pillar has been proud to be a part of the project and help make their dream of a concrete Skatepark a reality.
The Skatepark Design is finalized, the construction documents are good to go and fundraising efforts have been at full force. They have received a$25,000 grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation, $10,000 in donations from local Businesses and need to raise an additional $15,000 by May 31st in order to receive a matching grant from Baltimore City Recreation and Parks Department.
This matching grant would mean construction can finally begin on Phase 1 of the Skatepark, Phase 1 being a 3,600 sq. ft. bowl. The Skatepark is to be located behind the Roosevelt Recreation Center in Hampden at 1121 West 36th Street.
Help give this group of young people a place of their own. You can donate at the Baltimore Skatepark website.
