Skateboard Park Project

The Skate Park on the site off Greenland Road (Route 33) will soon be a key access point to the new NH Seacoast Greenway Route (Rail Trail). 

Funding for the Skateboard Park was included in the FY22- Capital Improvement Plan (page 76) for the FY24 budget. The proposed FY24-29 CIP (pg. 90) notes that FY24 Funding was completed in FY23 through a movement in the funding during the budget process. FY23 PPP reflects fundraising completed as of the end of FY22. FY28 and FY29 funding reflects the design and construction Phase II of the project.

At their April 17, 2023 the City Council voted to adopt a Resolution Authorizing a Bond Issue and/or Notes of up to One Million Eighty-Three Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,083,500.00) for Additional Costs for Constructing the Greenland Road Recreation Facility (Skateboard Park)
