What we are trying to do.

Mission

The mission of Tosa Skateboarders United (TSU – a registered 501c3 Non-profit organization) is simple: to build a skateboard park in Wauwatosa’s Hart Park.  Our skateboarding youth need a safe and appropriate place to practice their sport.  There are plenty of baseball fields and basketball courts – why no skate park?  We are going to change that by building a fun, safe, and beautiful place for both kids and adults to enjoy for years to come.

TSU is an organization of Wauwatosa residents who formed to give the youth in our community a voice, while also reaching out to local businesses and institutions about the importance of this undertaking.  The skateboarders in Tosa are vocally supportive of the project and have clear ideas about their ideal skatepark, which mirror the desires of other citizens.  They stress the importance of incorporating green space and making the park an aesthetically-pleasing addition to Hart Park.  They also envisioned a park designed to cater to all skill levels and ages – a spot that would promote lifelong participation in a healthy sport.

Our team of dedicated volunteers have worked tirelessly for several years to raise awareness, inform the community, and build relationships with professional and charitable operations nation-wide.  We are getting very close to realizing our dream, but we need your help in the final stretch to make the Tosa Skate Park a reality.

We are so close to realizing our dream, but we need your help in the final stretch.

How we'll get it done.

80+80+80

To build the skatepark Wauwatosa deserves, we needed to raise $240,000.

In early 2013, the Doyle Family stepped up big and proposed the Jack Doyle Memorial Challenge Grant.  They  pledged $80,000 if the City of Wauwatosa and Tosa Skateboarders United each match that amount.  In June 2013, the City of Wauwatosa agreed to match the Doyle Family’s contribution!  That meant that TSU was only $30,000 away from building the skate park!  And in October 2013, TSU reached their part of the Challenge Grant.  The skatepark planning is underway!

But we can make the skatepark even bigger and better with continued contributions!  So be a part of it and donate today!

A fun, safe street course for all ages

About the Park

The design of the Wauwatosa Skate Park will focus on two main objectives; creating a safe and fun course for our community skaters and bikers, and crafting a park that will enhance and showcase the natural beauty of Hart Park. The skatepark will be designed to mimic popular street skating elements found within Wauwatosa, and cater to all skill levels and ages, so that skaters from all backgrounds can enjoy the park fully.

The design of the park will give the youth of Wauwatosa a safe place to practice their sport, citizens will get a beautiful park to visit, and the city of Wauwatosa will have a cutting-edge space that will stand out not only among other parks in the Wisconsin, but in the entire United States.
