This past Saturday, Vans joined thousands of skateboarders, BMX riders and passionate city locals from greater Boston to celebrate the long-awaited grand opening of the Lynch Family Skatepark. As the final contributor to the project, Vans provided a leadership commitment of $1.5M, joining The Charles River Conservancy (CRC), the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), and the Lynch Foundation in supporting a brand new community skatepark located in East Cambridge, MA.
The exciting ribbon cutting ceremony welcomed various dignitaries to the podium, including key city officials, representatives from the CRC and DCR, Vans skateboarding am Rowan Zorilla and legends Tony Alva and Ray Barbee, rounded out by a warm welcome from Master of Ceremonies, Vans’ own Steve Van Doren.
