Work begins on the new skatepark

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, is pleased to announce that development work on the new skatepark next to the Aquatic Centre and Recreation building has begun for skateboard enthusiasts to enjoy starting next spring.

“This new facility was well received by residents during the public consultation for this project held last March. Over one hundred people contributed to the project by sharing their opinions about the proposed development,” stated Mayor John Belvedere.

The new skatepark will feature a variety of elements and structures that will appeal to beginners and experienced skateboarders alike. This 12,000-square foot facility will include street furniture, a bowl, a capsule, a mini-ramp, and a wave. The park will be able to accommodate forty athletes at a time.

As part of our vision focused on sustainable development, the trees on the facility site will be preserved and integrated into the skatepark’s design in order to create shaded areas where skateboarders can take a break.

Work will continue until November 2018, and the skatepark is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.

“This addition to the services we offer confirms our commitment to improve our facilities in order to reach even more people,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
