Stewy's Skate Park is located in Spring Hill, Florida

There is a park that many Hernando County residents do not know exists. Nestled on a corner of Talbot Circle and Pinehurst Drive is a local park in Spring Hill called Pioneer Park which was renamed to Stewy’s Park after Stewart Abramowicz, aged 12, died in a scooter accident January 2001 on Pinehurst Drive.  Abramowicz along with his twin brother Anthony had worked to raise money for building a skate park before both were tragically struck down by a vehicle in their Spring Hill neighborhood.  Anthony survived and helped to see the skate park become a reality.

Works of Evie Harper and Julie Komenda on display at PHSC's Rau Musunuru MD Art Gallery in New Port Richey.

Not only is it a fantastic opportunity for artists to gain exposure regarding their work, but it’s also a rewarding experience for the community.
