Manchester Skatepark

The Town of Manchester and the Manchester Skatepark Committee are collaborating to develop a world-class skatepark in Southern Vermont. The Town kicked off the project with the appropriation of $50,000 in matching funds, a donation of land and a pledge to manage and maintain the park.

The Town has selected a 22,000 sq. foot site at the Dana L. Thompson Memorial Park, and Grindline Skateparks has developed a master design. The park will be constructed in 3 phases as funds are raised.

As of January 2021, well over a quarter million dollars had been raised for the park, and phase 1 and 1.5 (an extension of phase 1 to add more flat space) have been completed.

Phase 1 (5,022 sq ft) - $260,000 (spring 2019)
Phase 1.5 (975 sq ft) - $50,000; includes additional flat space for street skating (fundraising now)

Phase 2 fundraising is underway.

Phase 2 (4,119 sq ft) - $225,000 (fundraising now)
Phase 3 (6,635 sq ft) - $355,000 (future phase)

TOTAL - 16,751 sq feet and $890,000

Can we count on you to contribute whatever funds, equipment or services you can afford and help us move that much quicker to Phase 2?
