Opening its doors to the public on August 16, the project was conceived as a placeholder for Bedrock until the corporation is ready to move forward on plans to redevelop its Monroe project. The park was designed in a way that when construction is ready to begin- the skate park will be relocated to another part of the city.
Renown skateboarder and current Detroiter Tony Hawk gave his input for the design of the park. The plan was to have a space available for mixed-use and events. So, while it serves primarily as a skate park, it is also capable of hosting a performance.
Contemporary street signs, reimagined by artist Ryan McGinness are on display along an Albert Kahn backdrop— the National Theatre building.
