About the Skate Park:
Built in 1998 as a result of a grassroots effort to provide a safe and fun place for local skaters to congregate, the Skate Park was named in memory of a local teen who passed away a couple of weeks after the Park’s opening.
Our Skate Park provides a rare opportunity for young people to congregate and socialize in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment while engaging in active, outdoor recreation in a personal best type of sport with no timetables or pressure to win or succeed. This inclusive and noncompetitive environment encourages creativity and friendship, and breeds the confidence and enthusiasm that carry over into other areas of life.
An exceptionally friendly staff, reasonable prices, and skating opportunities for everyone make the Graham Dickinson SPIRIT Skate Park the most enduring town-run Skate Park in the area, and a model program emulated by many other municipalities in New England.
People of all ages are invited to join the fun at the Graham Dickinson SPIRIT Skate Park!
