The event marked the reopening of the skatepark at Riverside Park on Glen Road under its new name, Rusty Berrings Skatepark , in honor of the skateboarding nickname of Kirschner, who suffered from mental illness and died last November at the age of 28.
It was a picture-perfect September afternoon, just a couple of dead leaves drifting onto a long ramp leading into a pit studded with sloped concrete structures, atop which skateboarders might pause for a moment or two to chat before attempting their next trick."
As stated about, The Rusty Berrings Skatepark at Riverside Park in West Lebanon, NH has completed Phase One thanks to many contributions! Phase Two is in need of additional funding. The goal is to make the entire skatepark concreate and replace the worn out wooden ramps with a new concrete design. This new concrete skatepark will last for a long time and withstand the brutal winter climate and variable weather of our region. The local skatepark is one of the most used recreation facilities in Lebanon, NH. The skatepark is key to keeping kids active and out of trouble. *All funds raised will go to the Lebanon, NH parks and recreation department to be used for the specific purpose of Phase Two of the Rusty Berrings Skatepark.
