Meredith Votes to Double Money for Hart Memorial Skatepark

Mar 14, 2019

Voters in Meredith have approved $50,000 to repair the town's skate park.

The Glenn Hart Memorial Skate park is in need of about $210,000 worth of repairs. Brendan Hart, youngest son of Glenn Hart, has been raising money for repairs. He says voters in Meredith originally considered giving $25,000.

"And when people discussed our petition for the $25,000, someone spoke up and said, 'I don't think $25,000 is enough. Let's give them $50,000. And everyone started cheering."

Last week the park received a $25,000 grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation. Supporters hope to finish fund-raising by the end of this summer.

Donations to the park can be made to Friends of Meredith Parks and Recreation and mailed to 1 Circle Drive, Meredith, NH 03253.
