Prospect-Eli

A group of enterprising Ypsilanti skateboarders have successfully converted an abandoned tennis court in Prospect Park into a regional skate destination. Conceived by Ypsilanti-native Eli Stevick, the park began humbly as just two benches to grind on, but has since progressed into a full-fledged skate park. Skaters come on weekends from as far away as Toledo, Kalamazoo and even Los Angeles. Top skateboarding website TheBerrics.com recently provided a $2,500 grant to build concrete ramps in the park and posted footage of Stevic and other local skaters to their website. Stevic and a few others are in the process of replicating the park’s current design (made with wood) into cement, and the park is still fully operational. Prospect Park, corner of Prospect Rd. and Cross St., Ypsilanti. Open 6am-10pm. 734-482-9825. cityofypsilanti.com
