HISTORY OF CONCORD SKATEBOARDING
The history of skateboarding in Concord extends well beyond the skatepark. Timeless shops like Banagans and a legendary pool made it into Transworld's "Top 10 Secret Spots in America." provided the local community with a rich past and strong drive to make the future just as much fun.
"Skateparks have always been a place where a wildly diverse community can form, and individuals can learn to push themselves and help others. The local community deserves a park that is on par with today's standards."
"The local skatepark has helped me stay active and foster a healthy lifestyle through an environment that promotes artistic self-expression by staying active. One of the best parts about this facility is that no membership is required. It is free for anyone to use and brings people with widely different backgrounds together, and friendships will inevitably form.
By being a regular at a skatepark, the youth will find a supportive community that encourages respect between peers and where knowledge will be passed from one generation to the next. They will be able to take what they learn here and apply it to other aspects of life. "
"I've been skateboarding for 20 years. I started when I was 12 and it has been a driving force behind my motivation in life. When I was 16, I got a job to pay for gas to travel to new skateparks. When I graduated college and moved for work, the skateboarding community played a significant role in helping me integrate into my new life. Concord deserves a park that represents the Granite State Capital."
