Your neighbourhood skatepark

It's been said that if your neighbourhood doesn't have a skatepark, your neighbourhood IS a skatepark. Please drive with caution through the Cathedral Area skatepark. Pay attention to traffic cones set up by parents, and watching for small s8rs coming thru the intersections around Connaught School. A skatebox has been left at the school to try to keep skaters contained on the cement pad infront, however it is a very small area, so skating also occurs on the streets and sidewalks.

Here's what Winnipeg's new Forks Skate Plaza will look like.

And here's a plaza that's already built, in California.

Progress report

March 9: So far fifteen people living on or very near Les Sherman Park, on both the north and south sides, have put their names forward as volunteer skate plaza stewards.

March 1: Following presentations by the city administration, Communities 4 Sk8rs and the Skatepark Stewards Network, the Parks Advisory Board passed a motion in favour of a skate plaza in North Les Sherman Park.

Feb 23: The Central Zone board, representing six community associations, passed a motion in favour of a skatepark in Les Sherman.

November: Our petition was formally submitted to the city. More than 1,600 people signed in favour of a skatepark in North Les Sherman, including some 500 Cathedral and River Heights area residents.

Good work, everyone!

Interesting fact: Saskatoon has plans for three more outdoor skate facilities. Full story.
