In 2013 the Southwood Community Association expressed interest with the City of Calgary to be one of the first communities in Calgary to get a permanent skatepark. Southwood was successfully chosen as one of the initial eight communities to be part of this project and chosen to be one of the first three to be built!
Construction is well underway, and the skatepark should be ready for early Spring 2016. Seasonal work like landscaping will be on-going, weather dependent.
In the meantime, check out the Southwood Concept Design, and the City's information on Skatepark Development. Here's an Engagement Timeline Summary of the Southwood Skatepark.
We'll keep you updated with details as they are available.
