CASE board members have reached out to City of Calgary Parks regarding the damage/wear to Millennium Park. We’ve combed the park and photographed the damaged areas and sent on to our City Parks contact. We’ll also be meeting with them in person to come up with some recommendations to make this skatepark safer for everyone.
Winter is here and, although there hasn’t been much snow yet, it’s definitely cold outside. That means another skateboarding season has come to an end. Calgary still has no indoor skatepark.
The only public option, currently, is “Skatelife” on Tuesday nights at Dalhousie Community Church. Click the image below for more info:
There will be a memorial for Mark Pezzi at the Airdrie Skatepark on Saturday, November 1 at 2PM. Mark’s ashes will be scattered by his mom and his son will be skating. Following that there will be a gathering at Nose Creek Valley Museum, 1701 Main St SW in Airdrie.
