Please donate and share with your friends and family! This final GoFundMe will ensure that a long-lasting concrete skatepark will be presented to our community in its best possible form. If you have yet to contribute to the Hart Family Skatepark, this is our final fundraising push.
We are nearing the completion phase of the new Hart Family Memorial Skatepark in Meredith, New Hampshire. This facility honors former Hart's Turkey Farm Co-owner Glenn Hart and Linda Hart-Buuck—lifelong supporters of youth recreation in the Lakes Region community—and will be the first concrete skatepark in the Lake Winnipesaukee area. The facility is being built by Artisan Skateparks, one of the best concrete skatepark construction companies in the country.
The Friends of Meredith Parks and Rec have raised over $250,000 from public and private funds, but in order to finish the skatepark in November we are doing a final fundraising push. These final funds will be used on the following:
• Additional flatground space in the skatepark
This skatepark will serve the Lakes Region community for generations to come. It will be a place to foster friendships, make memories, develop passions, and partake in healthy exercise.
Our skatepark story: In 2017 Brendan Hart launched a campaign to rebuild the Glenn Hart Memorial Skatepark in Meredith, NH. His father's memorial skatepark was a treasured recreational facility, but it did not age well over the years. Brendan worked alongside his mother Linda Hart-Buuck, FMPR President, and the FMPR team until she passed away suddenly in January, 2019. It was decided the skatepark would be renamed to commemorate Glenn and Linda. Peter Thorndike, who took on the FMPR presidency, and our group of hardworking volunteers have rallied the Meredith community around the dream of building the first concrete skatepark in the Lakes Region, which will be completed in November 2020 with a grand opening held in Spring 2021.
Thank you to all of our donors and to the following businesses who have been great helping us with the skatepark's construction:
