Skateparktour Partners with Canada Skateboard to List ALL Canadian Skateparks!

Skateparktour.ca is excited to announce a brand new partnership with Canada Skateboard!! We will work together to include ALL Canadian skateparks on Skateparktour.ca!  Canada Skateboard and Skateparktour realize how useful a complete skatepark directory will be and are working together to make it happen!

This partnership will be good for everyone who uses Canadian skateparks, not only skateboarders.  If you skate, BMX, scooter, inline skate, roller skate, or unicycle you can use Skateparktour.ca to find skateparks, and you can submit skateparks to be added. The more skateparks on the list, the more we all benefit.

Whiterock BC Skatepark

We need EVERYONE who uses skateparks to tell us about skateparks missing from Skateparktour.ca!  We want EVERY skatepark, large, small, indoor or outdoor. Use our easy to complete form to submit a skatepark. You can submit as many parks as you can visit, there is no limit!

To help get the wheels rolling about this project, Canada Skateboard is offering prizes for contributions made before August 31st! Every valid skatepark submission gives you a chance to win one of three prizes. You could win a Canada Skateboard coffee book, a Canada Skateboard deck or a Canada Skateboard Hydroflask.

So, let the skatepark blizzard begin! If your skatepark is not already on skateparktour.ca, submit it today!!!

First Episode Of New Skatepark Tour Video Series Published

For years now, Skateparktour.ca has included video edits shot at individual skateparks alont with photos or a virtual tour as part of the information provided about skateparks. In the past few years, fewer and fewer people have been making these “edits”, so Skateparktour.ca is starting to make our own.

The first video in the “LocalzSKatepark Tour”  video Series from the Glendale Skatepark in Red Deer AB has been published and more are on the horizon. The Glendale video features (Skateparktour.ca sponsor) Industry Skate & Snow team members Riley & Mitchell Gladue sharing their thoughts about Red Deer’s outstanding primary skatepark.

The name of the series, “Localz Skatepark Tour” intend to counter the “Locals Only” ethic that was once more common in skateparks, and promote skateparks as great places for people sho skate, bike, scooter, inline, unicycle, or WCMX to gather and have fun. Today’s skateparks are welcoming and inclusive, and this video series will provide another way to showcase what your skatepark has to offer.

Do you want to help make a Localz Skatepark Tour video for your local skatepark? Contact Skateparktour.ca to discuss how we could make it happen!

From The Oldest To The Newest, 32 Skatepark Virtual Tours Coming!

Seylynn skatepark

Seylynn Skatepark, Canada’s oldest skatepark. Virtual tour coming soon!

On a recent trip to BC, I visited 32 skateparks and took spherical virtual tour photos so that in time, you will be able to explore more Canadian skateparks with virtual tours!  Since 2006, Skateparktour.ca has provided skatepark users with opportunties to find and check out skateparks where they live and travel, and this recent trip will help skateparktour.ca keep current with the most popular skateparks in bC.

As this post is written, there are 195 Canadian skateparks on Skateparktour.ca, 88 of which are in BC. This trip will see 15 BC skateparks added and 16 parks upgraded to virtual tours from slideshows. The new additions include the recently opened Victoria Park in Coquitlam and Queens Park in New Westminster, and Canada’s oldest skatepark, Seylynn.

It will take some time to create and post all 32 virtual tours because skateparktour.ca is a one person operation, but they should all be in place before summer. that is the hope anyway. Each new addition will be announced on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to Like / Follow Skateparktour.ca so you will be kept up to date!
