Skaters may have new spot in Nashua
The current David W. Deane Skateboard Park on Bridge Street is about to be demolished to pave way for a major development project, leaving skateboarders in search of a new location for their park.
Although the future parkway will be constructed nearby, the parcel is available for use, she said, adding the Broad Street site has a larger layout than the existing plot on Bridge Street.
Lozeau said the proposed plot at 44 Broad St. is directly on the city’s public bus route and in a visible location.
So far, $270,000 has been approved for the future skate park, but the location still hasn’t been finalized.
Lozeau said the Broad Street site could be a “win” for the city and the skateboarders. If the plan is feasible, she is hopeful to have the parcel look more like a park by planting additional trees and developing extra green space.
Previously, an online petition collected more than 1,270 signatures from individuals hoping to have a new park built before the David W. Deane Skateboard Park is razed to make way for the major development project on Bridge Street.
Earl Verrier, manager at Eastern Border in Nashua, said previously that local skaters were devastated when they learned the existing park would be razed because of the development.
