Help Tony Hawk build a skatepark for the youth of Watts, and YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED by the Tony Hawk Foundation.* “To provide a positive alternative to the challenges that face the community, I’ve joined a coalition of community and business leaders to create a landmark skateboarding facility (skatepark) that will give Watts youth a place to be active, creative, and enjoy their sport,” says Tony Hawk. * The Tony Hawk Foundation will match all Global Giving donations up to $10,000.


This will be a sanctuary for local youth to meet, skate, and enjoy themselves in a safe environment. Top designers and builders will ensure the skatepark will be a landmark that the skaters of Watts and the entire community can be proud of.

Long-Term Impact

This landmark skatepark at the Watts Towers will provide the more than 2,000 local skateboarders a safe, sanctioned place to ride, and provide them a healthy, creative, athletic alternative to gangs, drugs, and crime.
