Walt & Mary Smyk Park

Smyk Park in the Spring

Smyk Park is an open space park for residents of Stratham for passive recreation.

The Park is a 10-acre property at 7 Bunker Hill Avenue, bequeathed to the town by the late Walter and Mary Smyk.

“Mary and Walter’s bequest was the most generous donation the town has received since Edward Tuck gave us (Stratham Hill Park),” resident Dave Canada said. Canada served as a member on the town’s Smyk Property Study Committee formed in the spring of 2018 to give the Select Board a recommendation on what to do with the property.

At their regularly scheduled meeting held on September 17th, 2018 the Stratham Select Board agreed to accept the property as a Town Park for the residents of Stratham.

The property has specific covenants placed on the land by the family’s trust, specifically to be used as a park for residents to use for recreation and cultural events.
