Keene Skatepark fundraising gets boost from skater's foundation
The effort to build a new Keene Skatepark on Gilbo Avenue recently received a boost from a legendary name in skateboarding.
The Tony Hawk Foundation awarded the park $10,000, according to a news release from the skatepark project organizers. The fundraising total now stands at $95,000, nearly a third of the way to the $300,000 goal for the park’s makeover.
The city of Keene has also included $25,000 in the capital improvement program for fiscal year 2020 to go toward the skate park, which was first established on 9,800 square feet of space in a Gilbo Avenue parking lot in 1997.
