The Laura Foundation is currently finishing the construction of an adaptive sports and recreation center in the Mount Washington Valley.
Thanks to fundraising efforts from grants, donations, and event income significant strides have been taken towards the development of the Laura Center.
In fact, as of spring 2014, Phase 1 of the construction process – modifying an existing building at the site – was complete. The main building at the Laura Center now includes bathrooms, a kitchen facility, increased dedicated space for year-round programming, as well as space for storage. Aside from the main building, an outdoor arena for therapeutic horseback riding has also been completed.
Phase 2, the construction of a multi-purpose barn, is complete. The barn is a versatile, four-season facility on its own with a climbing wall, a multi-purpose court, adaptive sports equipment, and two horse stalls.
Phase 3 wraps up the Center’s construction. The nine-foot wide, 1,000-linear-foot, paved bicycle path located within the enclosed fence of the facility was finished and in use for the 2019 summer program. Phase 3’s final project, the expansion of the existing botanical area (complete with a greenhouse), will be done in 2020.
