Sidney skate park open house set for Nov. 24

New skate park facility in the early stages of design and planning.

Skateboarders and interested people are invited to an open house information session at the  Sidney fire hall this month.

On Nov. 24, the Town of Sidney hosts a design session, featuring New Line Skateparks.

The company was hired by the municipality this year to create a new skate park facility, replacing the existing one south of the Mary Winspear Centre. The work is being done now, in anticipation that the current skate park site will be removed to make way for a proposed community safety building.

Mayor Steve Price says the consultant will come up with a preliminary design based on input from youth and others in town. Already, he said, feedback has been coming into the municipal office on the project.

“We have received tons of positive input,” he said.

This month’s open house, Price continued, should hopefully draw skateboarders, bike riders and other users of the park.

A new facility has been earmarked to go on land at the north end of Tulista Park, off Lochside Drive, near a portion of Sidney’s waterfront.

In addition to the meeting, people can submit their ideas about the facility online at the Town’s website, sidney.ca.

Watch the site and the PNR for more details on the Nov. 24 meeting, including start time.
