Kevin Peare 2/9/1986-7/12/2017

The Kevin Peare Memorial skate park Committee has been raising funds to build a free skate park for the Mount Washington valley for over 4 years. The skate park will be in memory of Kevin Peare, a Conway Native who passed away in 2017. His love of skateboarding and teaching it to anyone who wanted to learn, spearheaded this project. It was his dream to have a skate park in his hometown and a safe place to practice the sport. After Kevin’s  passing his older sister Caren Peare reached out to the Tony Hawk Foundation (now The Skate Project). Alec Beck the Director immediately contacted her back, He has been guiding the group on how to build a skate park.

Erin Russell, is a recipient of the Mount Washington Valley Volunteer of the year award!

Ground breaking for the skate park is now slated for 2023!

The Professional Designer and Builder have been chosen

Nicole Licari Robertson from Pillar Design Studios personally visited the park in Spain and designed it. Artisan Skate Park Builders. The skate park will be a State of the Art concrete skateboarding park, 7,000 sq feet. It will be free to the public and be owned by the Town. The group will stay on to oversee maintenance. 

We have created an after school program curriculum “Skateboarding 101” Working with Project Succeed . The children are taught safety first . Then they are taught to build a skateboard , then finally learn to ride it. They leave the program with the skateboard they built. This will be something the group will continue once the skatepark has been built. They also are planning on offering classes and summer programs or camps.

Other news, We have become their own non-profit 501(3)C. (N32) We have raised over $65,000 by grassroots fundraising and donations. Holding family friendly and affordable fundraisers. Each January we have The Skateboard Art show at the Conway Public Library, once a year they have The Battle of the Bands and The Wicked Rides car show to name a few. They sell KPMSP merchandise like t-shirts, hoodies, ball caps and stickers and they have donation cans in these businesses around the Valley. Headlines , First Stop, Revolution Records, North Conway music Center , Leavitt’s bakery.

This year for Kevin’s birthday we decided it was time to start buying a birthday gift again. Zale Dunbar made this beautiful skateboard for the Art show. Knowing he was a skateboarder, we thought giving him back his amazing “Hydro dipped board with a custom logo of a whale skateboarding (that he designed himself ) was the way to go.
We gave him everything to set it up: So he could use his 🛹 skateboard.
We love what we do ❤
