Andover Community Skate Park
From Andover Answers
The skate park opened on July 11, 1998 behind West Junior High School. Bill Fahey, Youth Service coordinator, was instrumental in establishing the park. Town Meeting approved $45,000 for a skate park in April 1998. The park's structures accommodate skate boarders and in-line skaters at both beginner and advanced levels. The park is open from mid June and to October.
In 2010, through fundraising and donations, $91,000 was raised for upgrades and maintenance of the park.
