Skate Park Project
Riley Skate Park was designed by one of the best skate park
designers in the country, Site Design Group. The 29,000 square
foot all-concrete park will be host of local and national
competitions and will become the area's premier hotspot for
skateboarders and in-line skaters. The unique design provides
elements for skateboarders/in-line skaters of all skill levels,
and spectators the opportunity to view the activity in a
comfortable park like setting, for free.
Riley Skate Park was named after a donor, George Riley and the
Riley Foundation, who gave $500,000 toward the City of Farmington
Hills Skate Park project. Riley Skate Park is expected to
attract over 200 skaters each day, in addition to the thousands of
people who will visit the skate park for skateboard competitions
and camps. Currently, 722,000 people visit Founder's Sports
Park each year for various activities and events. 28,300
vehicles pass by Founder's Sports Park every day. The
location of Riley Skate Park in Founder's Sports Park will provide
corporate and individual donors tremendous exposure and area
businesses economic support.
