The Ian Tilmann Skate Park
Safety Harbor, Florida

The Skatepark has now been completely redesigned and rebuilt! Check out all the latest news on our FACEBOOK PAGE.

On
April 21, 2007 the City of Safety Harbor dedicated a local Skate Park in honor and memory of Ian Tilmann. The Skate Park dedication acknowledged the efforts of The Ian Tilmann Foundation, Inc. to promote helmet use for the prevention of traumatic brain injuries by providing FREE helmets to skaters who promise to wear them. The United States Marine Corps Color Guard presented the Flag in honor of Ian's military service.  Over 200 Skaters and their families attended the dedication. Those who knew Ian spoke about his life and love of Skateboarding. The formal dedication was presented by the Mayor of Safety Harbor, Mr. Andy Steingold.

The growth of Helmet for a Promise at the Skate Parkbrought new focus to the Foundation's program. The Skate Park has placed over 1,100 helmets since the dedication. Skaters can register for Helmet for a Promise at the Community Center located next to the Skate Park any time during open hours. The helmets are "dropped shipped" to the Skate Park and the park Recreation staff arrange for pick up. The Foundation also maintains FREE Loaner Helmets at the Park so no Skater is ever turned away for lack of a helmet. The Ian Tilmann Skate Park is where the Helmet for a Promise grew and evolved into the national program of today. The local Old School Skater community has been supportive from the start and continue their support to expand the program to other public and private Skate Parks.
