Skateparks popping up like popcorn in Alberta

20 New Skatepark in SIX years!

It's A Good Time to be a Skateboarder or BMX'er in Alberta


Lacombe skateparkNew skateparks have been popping up all over Alberta over the past few years. Since Spateparktour.ca went online in 2006 new skateparks have been built in  Airdrie. Black Diamond, Cochrane, Callingwood (Edmonton), Canmore, Grosvenor (Edmonton), Langdon, Leduc, Morinville, Olds, Ponoka, Strathmore, Taber, and the Westside rec Centre in Calgary (replacement park). Late last fall the new parks in Lacombe and Nanton opened and there are new skateparks in Sylvan Lake, Sundre, Grande Prairie opening this summer.  A major new park in Red Deer that will likely open in the spring of 2013 as well.  That is 20 new skateparks in 6 years, not counting the proposed park in Edmonton that Skaetparktour does not have a status update on. Notable in it's absence is the City of Calgary has only one privately owned skatepark on the list, none public.  Hopefully the newly approved and very supportive Skateboard Ammenity Strategy sees construction start in the province's largest city soon.
