A couple of years ago, local Rimbey skaters and BMX'ers went to use their local skatepark, only to find that much to their surprise, all of the modular obstacles had been removed. Coming without warning, the surprise is understandable but it couldn't have been much of a shock because the old park had been deteriorating and had become dangerous to ride. This past week, construction on the new Rimbey Skatepark was completed, and the locals are stoked with their new park, judging by the crowds there the past few days. The new park is one of the largest in Central Alberta and features lots of transition elements as well as an assortment of the usual ledges, rails, manny pads every skatepark has to have. The Rimbey park will surely attract people from across Central Alberta and around the province as it is definitely worth the drive west of Highway 2
The old park will no doubt be remembered fondly by those who had good times there, but the Town of Rimbey and Ponoka County have ensured that Central Alberta skatepark users will have a facility to have fun and build great memories in for many years to come!
