When Nick Tershay started Diamond hardware in 1998, it was always in his mind to build his brand big enough to give back to skateboarders in the same way skateboarding gave to him. Fast forward to 2014 to the challenging neighborhood of Boyle Heights where the kids desperately needed a safe place to skate and a training ground to work towards a better life and that is where you will find the new Diamond Skatepark. It was because of the efforts of Nick Tershay, Jeron Wilson, Rob Dyrdek, the city of Los Angeles and the rest of the Diamond family that Hazard Park will now be known as the Diamond Skate Plaza and the kids will be alright. This park is by skateboarders for skateboarders in a place where skateboarding will literally save lives. If you’re in the area of Boyle Heights, go skate and have some fun.

Press Release:

Diamond Supply Co. Public Skate Plaza is officially open to the public. This exciting new Plaza, located at Hazard Park in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, has been made possible by Diamond Supply Co., the Street League Foundation and the California Endowment. The Diamond Supply Co. Public Skate Plaza at Hazard Park came to life after the Street League Foundation approached The California Endowment last year about working together to create healthy and sustainable communities by constructing safe, legal and accessible places for everyone to skate. Through a grant from The California Endowment, the Street League Skateboarding Foundation donated $160,000 to the construction of a brand new skate plaza at Hazard Park, but needed to find a matching grant in order to effectuate the initial $160,000 donation. Nick Diamond, founder of Diamond Supply Co., generously donated the remaining balance for the completion of what will now be known as the Diamond Supply Co. Public Skate Plaza. See more at: http://californiaskateparks.com/2014/07/diamond-supply-co-skate-plaza/#sthash.48XbDoge.dpuf
