By now you should know that Calgary is getting three new outdoor concrete skateparks this year. The neighbourhoods they will be located in are Southwood, Chinook Park/CKE, and Huntington Hills.
The construction tender closes on August 19th and a qualified builder will be chosen at that time by the City. CASE has been instructed that construction will begin at the end of August with parks being complete and skateable before winter, weather permitting of course.
Here are the designs for the three parks for 2014:
The City of Calgary Parks Department is seeking input on whether permanent regional park hours should be implemented that would see Shaw Millennium Park open from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily. You can share your feedback with Parks by filling out a brief online survey, which will be open August 6th – 18th or in person at The City Events Vehicle on site at Shaw Millennium Park on August 8th from 3 – 8 p.m., August 16th 6 -10 p.m. and August 17th from 12 – 5 p.m. City representatives will be available to answer questions.
The producer for Hero Images is looking to shoot photos of skateboarding. From Hero:
“We would like to photograph teenagers (12 years old – 19 years old) who have a variety of skill sets in either or both skateboarding and BMX, from beginners to experts. The shoot will be on either August 13th or 14th for 4 – 6 hours (likely between 10am – 6pm).
We would pay a fee as well as provide people with the final images, which they can use to promote themselves or just keep as a great souvenir.
To get an idea of the types of images we take, please have a look at our showreel on our website (http://heroimages.com/) or check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HeroImages”
