Manchester Skatepark


UPDATE: We have received a $250,000 pledge from a potential donor, along with another $100,000 donor with a goal to complete the Manchester Skatepark in 2022! Together with the recently approved Town contribution of $50,000 and funds raised to date, we only need to raise $125,000 to complete all 3 phases of the skatepark located at the Dana L. Thompson Recreation Park in Manchester Center.

The current park has been providing sun-up to sun-down activity for people of all ages since it opened on Labor Day 2019. Skateboarding made its debut in the last Olympics, showing its true inclusive culture on the main stage. The camaraderie, self-goal setting, and physical nature of skateboarding make it a great activity for all to enjoy.
Please help us complete the park and scan the code to give what you can to help get the park finished this year!

Feel free to use mail for donations - CHECK MEMO: Manchester Skatepark
SEND TO: Manchester Town Hall, 40 Jeff Williams Way, Manchester Center, VT 05255
