    The city of Pontiac, MI recently celebrated its Grand Opening of the Roberto Duran Rodriguez Skatepark with the help of The Skatepark Project (formerly the Tony Hawk Foundation).

    Tons of local community members, funders, supporters and most importantly, skateboarders were in attendance to kick off opening day with a bang. Take a closer look at the park below and some photos from the big day.

    But the fun and positive vibes hardly stopped there! To make it even better, through The Skatepark Project's 'Supply The Ride' program, 100 skateboards, and 25 helmets were donated to local kids in the community as well, providing proper gear to those in need. It's a major win-win for the folks in and around Pontiac!

    Plus, the park looks super fun and future generations will always have a place to call their own now.

    The Skatepark Project is a skateboarding organization pioneered by Tony Hawk that helps communities build public skate parks for youth in underserved communities. They've helped build hundreds upon hundreds of skateparks across the country and continue to push for more. Their hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed as they push the envelope even further with each new build.

    Great skateparks should be accessible to everyone! And they're doing an incredible job to keep that spirit alive and well, alongside local communities across the US. To learn more, visit The Skatepark Project site here . And if you're ever in or around Pontiac, MI, stop by and roll around!
