GWL Skatepark

Donation: $185,312.60 / $300,000.00


Together we can create a safe skating environment for the kids and the community of Greenwood Lake

It’s proven that skateparks build and sustain healthy communities, and their benefits are numerous. As a gathering place for dedicated, athletic youth, the skatepark provides the forum for visitors young and old, beginning and skilled, to meet and share experiences. For many skateboarding youth, the skatepark becomes a home-away-from-home.

Just like every skatepark, the GWL Skatepark will be the result of a partnership between youth, government, local civic organizations and businesses. In spite of their rough edges, skateboarders often prove to be incredible advocates for the things that are important to them, and the long process of skatepark development is transformative not just for the skateboarders, but for the agencies, business owners and individuals that work with them.

To start that process, we created a non-profit 501(c)(3) called GWL Skatepark Corp. and we are dedicated to building this professional concrete skatepark in Greenwood Lake, NY in memory of Dale Hirrel, a local teenager and skateboard fanatic who was tragically killed as a passenger in an automobile accident in April 2016.

Based on the national average of a cost/sq. ft. to build a concrete skatepark, we are estimating the need for anywhere from $300,000 to $350,000 to design and produce a professional concrete flowpark. Will you help us reach that goal?
