The Chatham Skatepark completed the first phase of construction in the fall of 2011. The concrete park is approximately 2500 sq. ft. and was constructed by WhoSkates of Kennebunk, Maine. The park is free and open to the public weather permitting. Please see rules below for hours of operation as well as guidelines.
The Town of Chatham had been working on skate park plans for four years, involving skateboarders of all ages in the planning and fundraising process. The hope was to provide a state-of-the-art facility for boarders, who often skateboard on the streets of Chatham. To date the Crellin Park Foundation and the Chatham Skate Park Committee have raised nearly $100,000 for this cause!
We still need another $20,000 to complete the pool portion of the park. A tax-deductable donation may be sent to: The Crellin Park Foundation, Inc, 488 Rt 295, Chatham, NY 12037.
