Celebrity skateboarder Tony Hawk will be one of the first to break in the Pitcher Park Memorial Skatepark in Carnegie, officials announced Thursday.

Hawk and other members of his Birdhouse Skateboards team will present a free exhibition skate starting at 5 p.m. Aug. 25 at the skatepark, located in Carnegie Park off Forsythe Road. Vendors will set up tents with toys, skating gear and food.

The park's skating structure is complete, but it is not yet open to the public pending the completion of lighting, landscaping, drainage and sidewalks.

Funding from the Tony Hawk Foundation and the Ken & Carol Schultz Foundation helped the design and construction of the $600,000 park, which Mary Pitcher started planning in 2008 as a memorial to her two sons.
