A new skatepark will be rolling in to Kearney soon, and a big name is carving the project. Kearney was one of eight cities to receive a grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation. The 5 thousand dollar matching grant will be used for engineering and construction of the new skatepark, to be located at Apollo Park.

Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk established his foundation to promote healthy, active lifestyles, and provide technical assistance and funds for high quality public skateparks. Construction of the new park is expected to begin this summer.
