Portsmouth Breaks Ground on $3M Skatepark

Portsmouth Breaks Ground on $3M Skatepark
May 29, 2023

The multi-year effort to bring a skateboard park to the Port City has officially reached the construction stage.

Past and present Portsmouth leaders, joined by residents at the front line of the skatepark push, took to the city ‘stump dump’ off Route 33 on Thursday afternoon for a ceremonial groundbreaking at the site.

The site will undergo a phased overhaul that will eventually see walking paths, a playground, additional parking, lighting and field upgrades.

The city expects the Skateboard Park to initially open for use this coming fall, though additional work on the site will be needed next spring.
