The Village of Mexico, New York, is using a $5,000 award to complete the Freedom Skate/BMX Park. Our funding is going toward bike-specific elements in the park and helping leverage city funding as well as money raised by the BMX and skate communities. The Tony Hawk Foundation also contributed to this great project.

The shared-use facility, which has strong support from the city's mayor and parks & recreation commissioner, will provide a place for freestyle BMX riders and skaters to coexist happily—and free of charge. It will also be a venue for events, clinics, and after-school programs.
