Bethel’s smooth operators

John Hogan, left, and Carl Guererro, top right, both of Hardwick, Vt., smooth the concrete on a feature of the Bethel, Vt., Skate Park, on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2023. The first phase of the park was completed in 2020 and the second phase, started in early September by Parker Construction and expected to be completed by Nov. 1, roughly doubles its size. The Bethel Recreation Committee raised $25,000 to match a Land and Water Conservation Grant from the Vermont Department of Forests Parks and Recreation, and voters approved a contribution of $30,000 at Town Meeting to fund the $80,000 project.
