In 2003, the Spirit Skate Park opened in memory of Rob Carr and Jake Shumway. In 2006, we gifted it to the Town of Hopkinton. Unfortunately, the park was closed last year for safety concerns.

A coalition of residents including people who helped build the park in 2003 and us, 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.

The skatepark means a lot to the residents of Hopkinton. That is where kids go to relieve stress after a long day, where you go to have a good time to hang out with your friends.  The kids of Hopkinton need this skatepark to open again. 100% of the money raised will be used to rebuild the skate ramps and repair damaged signage. We would be so thankful if you would donate to this fund page.

PARK UPDATE: The original skate park designer, Frank Sparrow, has agreed to do the repair work. Skate lite has been ordered, and next Saturday the labor of taking off the damaged boards and repairing the wood support structures underneath begins. We are working to get Spirit Skate Park repaired and reopened as soon as possible, and hope to do so before school is out for the summer. Stay tuned!
