Two conceptual designs for skate park expansion

Designs based on feedback through the community and user engagement

The Municipality of North Cowichan and New Line Skateparks have developed two concept designs fore the expansion plan for the X-Treme Skate Park.

The concept designs for the $200,000 expansion of the park, located next to the Cowichan Aquatic Centre, were created based on feedback through the community and user engagement.

The existing skate park, co-owned by North Cowichan and the City of Duncan who will share the costs of the expansion, was constructed in 1997 for $125,000.

The park is considered a key recreational facility in the region and is well-used by boarders, scooters and bikers.

In a report to council last year, Mansueti said users have continuously requested that the park be upgraded or expanded to meet the numerous advances in skate-park designs.
