In 2003, the Spirit Skate Park opened in memory of Rob Carr and Jake Shumway. In 2006, it was gifted 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 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.
