Skate park upgrade offers cool way to maintain social distance

Work to upgrade and renovate the skate park at Chatham’s Crellin Park took place over the last two weekends. The genesis for this improvement came from Chatham Area Recreation Project (CARP), a local non-profit. In talking with some of the veteran skaters in the area CARP came up with several modifications to make the current park much more open, enjoyable and “skateable.” The skate park was created and funded by The Crellin Park Foundation in 2008. With the support of the town and the funding by The Crellin Park Foundation, CARP worked with Bonded Concrete, Herrington’s, ACP, Dan Crellin and Sam Gleason for the donations of materials and equipment to make the improvements possible. The park is now open sunrise to 9 p.m. Working on the upgrades were Tiger Coleman, Matt Fisher, Justin Smith, Mike Cerqua and Eammon McBride. Photo by Taylor Call
