Rye Airfield Skate & Bike Park
Airfield Drive Airfield Drive, Rye, NH 03870
,

Rye Airfield is New England’s premiere indoor skatepark. Our indoor skate park was originally designed and built by Jack Murphy Productions (designers of The Gravity Games, Vans Skateparks and the Dew Tour) with the consultation of former Pro Skater, Dave Duncan. Over the past seven years we have remodeled a handful of times but the most recent was a massive overhaul of nearly 20,000 square feet with the design and construction coming from Brad Jameson and John Saxton of Skidmark Skateparks. Our year round indoor facility has 50,000 square feet and features everything you’ve dreamed about riding or skating all under one roof.

The Lady of the Sea: NH Marine Memorial
Ocean Blvd, Hampton, NH 03842
,

“Breathe soft, ye winds, Ye waves in silence rest.” Under former Governor Hugh Gregg, the commission chose the plot of ground at Hampton Beach across from the Ashworth Hotel to locate the memorial. Various designs for the Memorial were submitted and finally a design by Alice E. Cosgrove [1909-1971], a talented artist from Concord NH, was chosen. Her design was accepted unanimously after the commission members had viewed the other entries. She made a scale model which was used by a Cambridge, Massachusetts sculptor, Teodors Uzarins, to model a life-size statue in clay at the Caproni Galleries in Boston. Uzarins, working closely with Alice produced the sensitive face and feeling now immortalized in NH granite which you see today. The monument, Lady of the Sea, was completed and dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1957.
