Skateboard amenities strategy
We are working hard on designing and implementing skateparks throughout the city. TheSkateboard Amenities Strategy (SAS) provides the framework for achieving a city-wide network for future skateboard parks in Calgary.
In January 2014, we held open houses in three quadrants in the city and collected input from an online survey to hear from Calgarians. As a result, eight sites have been selected for future construction. Skateboard Park Site Selection Report
The City has selected eight sites with support from the following communities:
- CKE – Chinook Park, Kelvin Grove/Eagle Ridge
- Huntington Hills
- New Brighton
- Deer Run
In April 2014, Over 200 skatepark enthusiasts attended city wide and community participatory design sessions.
In June 2014, we held three open houses to present design concepts for the skatepark development sites in Chinook Park/Kelvin Grove, Southwood, and Huntington Hills.
Public engagement is a process that allows citizens to get involved in public issues they care about. More importantly, it informs the decisions made by The City of Calgary. Public engagement is critical to the success of the Skateboard Amenities Strategy: Implementation.
