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, began in the spring of 2015 and will be complete for the summer of 2017. The barn will become a versatile, four-season facility on its own. It will include an indoor climbing wall, a multi-purpose court, and adaptive sports equipment. There will also be two horse stalls, allowing for a larger therapeutic riding program. Phase 3 will wrap up the Center’s construction. This will include a paved bicycle path, and the expansion of the facility’s existing botanical area (complete with a greenhouse) for therapeutic gardening.
