Free Dallas Skatepark: 4DWN Project

4DWN Project  is DFW’s first nonprofit, meaning 100% FREE TO THE PUBLIC, skateboarding and related arts facility. Yes, 4DWN Project is a free dallas skatepark, but more accurately, it is a public place for skateboarding, art, music, events, after school programs, agricultural education, mentorship and inspiration.

Skateparks are often designed exclusively for skaters, but a public place for skateboarding aims to utilize it into a multi-purpose space and celebrate this integration. Having sparked a new approach between skateboarding and personal development, 4DWN Project is symbolic of a vibrant city with rich cultural heritage and a promising future where space is designed to accommodate skateboarding as an inspiring and supportive tool behind the life and movement of underserved individuals.

Your contribution to 4DWN is tax-deductible; 4DWN Project is a non-profit tax-exempt organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. Your generous donation helps 4DWN continue to assist in the support and development of DFW’s at-risk youth and support skateboarding to the fullest.

Some amazing local contributors have stepped up to support this campaign, including Loyd Foundation, TC Lupton Family Foundation, Speerco, Al Hill Jr., Yvonne Crum, Goodfriend, Index Skateboard Supply , Point Skate Shop, Zumiez , Chrissy Brookshire, Kareem Campbell, and many individuals as well. We are so grateful for their support, and are so appreciative of the barriers they’ve helped us overcome.

4DWN Project has been a long time coming. We have spent countless hours working to raise funds, seek City and State approvals, match our design aspirations with our budget, and pull together all of the moving pieces associated with developing a major nonprofit project. We broke ground on our new location in December of 2015 and opened our doors for back to school 2016 . Thanks to all that helped provide DFW’s under-served youth a place to find insight, inspiration, and guidance through skateboarding and related arts.

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you at 4DWN Project!
