Ontario Skateparks Added With The Help Of Local Partners

4 Ontario Skateparks Added This Week

Being based in Central Alberta with a limited travel budget makes it a challenge to include skateparks from across Canada, but with the help of some local partners in Ontario, Skatearktour.ca has been able to grow our Ontario presence to include 18 skateparks in the past few months. 

Old Balls Skateboard Co. got the wheels rolling when our friend Mike B moved east and offered to provide skatepark photos from his Ontario travels starting last summer. So far, Old Balls has added 14 skateparks to Skateparktour.ca, including some in Winnipeg from Mikes long eastward drive.

Spott Dreams of Skateparks is a blog that features photos and comments about skateparks mainly in Ontario, but including some from other provinces too. When blogger Scott L noticed that Skateparktour.ca was adding Ontario parks to its directory he offered to provide photos from parks he has travelled to! In the first few weeks of 2017, Scott has added 5 parks to Skateparktour.ca, 4 from Ontario and one from Manitoba.

Here are some of the newest parks added to Skateparktour.ca in the past week with photos from Spott Dreams of Skateparks:

 

 St. Marys Skatepark, St. Marys Ontario

St Marys is a cool neighbourhood plaza style park ,V shaped park with stairs, rails, ledges and a tight quarter.

Algoport Skate & BMX Park, Port Colborne ON

The Port Colborne skatepark is a huge park, shaped like a freighter passing through the nearby locks, with a plaza, transition, flow and bowl features to keep everybody entertained!

Nobleton Skatepark, Nobleton ON

 Nobleton is a fun neighbourhood park with a mellow bank to barrier, ledge/manny combo, wedge, hip, rail, hubba and quarter

 

Tecumseh Skatepark, Tecumseh ON 

Tecumseh is an excellent larger skatepark featuring hand rails, ledges, hubbas, stairs, step-ups, bank to barrier, mini-ramp with a huge extension and more.

Skateparktour.ca also has a couple of photo contributors in other provinces. One on Vancouver Island, is the parent of a young skatepark user, while another is a western Canada based rep for one of the major industry brands, who forward photos of parks taken on his trips through Alberta and Saskatchewan. If you would be willing to contribute photos of your local park, or parks where you travel, please contact Skateparktour.ca!

Happy New Year 2017!

Happy New Year To ALL Skatepark Users!

 Skateparktour.ca wishes a very happy and healthy new year to everyone who enjoys skateparks in 2017! Whether you ride a scooter, a bike, or a skateboard, we hope you have fun and your skills progress every time you go to a skatepark!  Skateparktour.ca hopes to see more and more skateparks being built all over Canada, and hopefully this is the year that we leave behind any animosity to those who ride something other that what we do. The scene in every skatepark should be one of mutual respect, sharing, and having fun doing something we enjoy. 

Skateparktour.ca Redesign Planned

It has been a few years since the Skateparktour.ca look, feel, and content organization was revised, and a major redesign project is planned for 2017. The redesigned site will work better on mobile devices, and will be more useful to help you find and navigate to skateparks using your phone or tablet, and we hope to have it ready to launch early in this skatepark season.

More Skateparks To Be Added

Skateparktour.ca has over 50 more skateparks on the list to add when we can get to each park to take photos. We have a small network of contributors in 3 provinces who provide photos and park information, helping grow Skateparktour.ca and keep the directory information up-to-date. There are currently 248 skateparks on Skateparktour.ca, and each has been visited in person to provide photos and current information about the park. This makes Skateparktour.ca Canada's largest and most reliable skatepark directory, helping users find skateparks to ride wherever they live or travel

Have a great year!

Have a great year in skateparks across Canada, and enjoy skateboarding, BMX, Mountain biking, scootering, inline skating, or wheelchair freestyle!

Support Your Local Shop Or Park This Christmas!

This Christmas when you are gift shopping for family and friends, please remember to shop your local core skate, bike, and scooter shops and your local indoor skatepark (if you are lucky enough to have one in your town)! When we shop local, the profit generated from our purchase goes to local business owners and their families, not to huge multinational corporations or online retailers headquartered far away and often in a foreign country.

Local shops and parks are the ones who organize comps, demos, and video premieres.  They are the ones that will be there to support efforts to get a new skatepark in your community. The big mall stores rarely (if ever) invest time, effort, or money to build the local scene, they just move their profits to head office. 

Skateparktour.ca really appreciates the support of several excellent core shops over the past year, and two outstanding Canadian skatepark design  and construction companies. We want to recognize and thank these businesses for their help in keeping Skateparktour.ca alive and growing!
