Dale Hirrel, GWL Skatepark

Dale Hirrel

and his dream

Dale Hirrel dreamed of having a skatepark in his hometown of Greenwood Lake, NY. However, in April of 2016 Dale perished tragically as a passenger in a car accident at the young age of 16.

In 2017 GWL Skatepark Corp. took up the torch and planned to bring Dale’s dream to reality. Please take a moment to watch this video of our Vice President Kurk Koziel as he provides an update on our history, our mission and the many ways in which our supporters can help take us over the finish line and get GWL Skatepark built for the village of Greenwood Lake and the surrounding communities.

Become a Volunteer

Help bring Dale's dream to life!

When a community gets a skatepark, they get (among many other benefits) a safe place for their youth and youthful-minded to develop active lifestyles away from the risks found in the streets. We’ll need your help to build this!

Upcoming Events

We'll be hosting many events in the near future to help reach our goal. Check back often and spread the word!
