KIP MOORE COMEBACK
Each park will have a unique design to provide the perfect first step for anyone of any age to learn how to skate. Making the most of the size and space available, most skate spots will range from 1,500 to 3,000 square feet and will include elements such as quarter pipe, bank-to-curb, hubba ledges, hand rail and step up. Most of the phase one skateparks will be up and running by this Fall.
The "Comback Kid Skatepark Project" is the first initiative of "Kip's Kids Fund," a donor-advised fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) focused on youth and teens. As an avid rock climber, surfer, skateboarder and outdoor enthusiast, Moore has been drawn to the outdoors and alternative sports for much of his life. He also has a heart for small town and inner city kids growing up with too few options. As a result, the "Kip's Kid Fund" provides alternative outlets for youth to engage in healthy habits and physical activities like skateboarding, in addition to the traditional sports offerings where they live.
