A skatepark that meant a lot to the East Coast summers, and Kink riders that used to spend their time there. A local park of Aaron Smith himself, along with many other riders to come from New Hampshire, and the surrounding areas!
In 2003, the Spirit Skate Park opened in memory of Rob Carr and Jake Shumway. Unfortunately, the park was closed last year due to safety hazards and is in need of serious repairs to be reopened.
A coalition of residents—including people who helped build the park in 2003 and high school and middle school students who want to see the park reopened—has volunteered to form the Friends of the Hopkinton Spirit Skate Park committee. Together, we are committed to raising the funds required to repair the park and maintain it in the future.
