The Lynch Family Skatepark

The Lynch Family Skatepark, adjacent to North Point Park, is a major capital project of the Charles River Conservancy. What began as an idea by renowned sculptor Nancy Schön, famous for her Tortoise and Hare andMake Way For Ducklings sculptures in Copley Square and the Boston Public Garden respectively, and carried forward by the Charles River Conservancy, the project is more than a decade in the making. In 2004, the Conservancy began to raise funds from individual donors and private foundations for the project.

The skatepark site is located in East Cambridge beneath the ramps to the iconic Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, adjacent to the North Bank Bridge, a newly constructed pedestrian bridge connecting North Point Park to Paul Revere Park in Charlestown. The “wheel-friendly” park is designed to accommodate skateboarders, BMX riders, and inline skaters and will include seating and access around the skate plaza for spectators who wish to watch the athletes in action.  The skatepark will have the capacity to support community clinics and events, as well as world-class competitions.
