Hopkinton Skate Park Needs Renovations

Hopkinton Skate Park Needs Renovations
January 11, 2024

Spirit Skate Park in Hopkinton is more than a recreational space, to most it’s been a place to make lasting friendships.

The park is showing the effects of natural wear and tear, and with significant structural issues posing a threat to safety, the town is exploring options and discussing the future of the 20-year-old facility.

The skate park opened in 2003 in memory of two Hopkinton friends, Rob Carr and Jake Shumway.

Their lives were cut short when a snow cave collapsed, burying them under snow.

Funding for renovations is being discussed.
