Skatepark Built in Honor of Ethan Williams

Following the death of 20-year-old Ethan Williams, an Indiana University students who was shot by a stray bullet while visiting New York City in 2020, Ethan’s parents and the Indy skateboarding community came together to get the ball rolling for the creation of the skatepark. Skating was one of Ethan’s passions, and the park will be created to honor the life and legacy of this local skateboarder whose life was taken too soon.
