New Skatepark Update – Construction

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:

Hero Images Looking for Skateboarders

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 ( or check out our Facebook page:”

If anyone is interested, they can email a recent picture to (camera phone pictures are perfect).
