2011 was an amazing year at skateparktour.ca, the best since the site went live in the fall of 2006. Popularity is growing, just take a look at these numbers:
Clearly, skateparktour.ca is proving useful to skateboarders, BMX’ers, and other wheeled sports enthusiasts in western Canada.
Lots of new skateparks added
Skateparktour.ca now features 163 skateparks in BC and Alberta, including 102 from BC . . . and we’re not done yet! There are still 24 more skateparks in BC that need to be added, and another 16 in Alberta. Plans are being made to include Saskatchewan and Manitoba skateparks as well in 2012, so it is very possible that skateparktour.ca could have over 200 skateparks in the next year or two!
The biggest problem in adding skateparks is getting photos for the tour. This is an important component of skateparktour.ca as other skatepark directories often don’t provide photos or even accurate locations, and skateparktour strives to provide complete and accurate information about every skatepark. In 2012, four skateparks were added using fan photos, including some taken with an iPhone!! If you can help provide skatepark photos, or action photos/videos, please email!!
Big Plans For 2012
Skateparktour.ca has some ambitious plans for 2012 including:
Thanks for being a fan of skateparktour.ca and have an great time exploring western Canada’s skateparks in 2012!
