In fall 2007 Tigard will get a new spot for the kids to hang out. The 15,000 square foot park will have stairs, ledges and two large bowls. It will also feature a rotating top "volcano" where skaters ride onto a 6 foot diameter cylinder that can be spun manually.
The concrete park has even been endorsed by skating legend Tony Hawk and $5,000 of the construction cost was provided by the Tony Hawk Foundation plus $1,000 in promotional materials. Every bit helps since skateboarders in Tigard have been trying to raise the money for the park for years. The local skaters, and therefore the community, were very much involved in the whole process making the park truly feel like it belongs to Tigard.
