The City of Calgary has expanded their mobile skatepark program, so there are even more locations in 2018. The program begins in May and reaches all four quadrants of the city. They are free to use and have competitions throughout the spring, summer, and fall until the program finishes in September. Check out the locations and schedule below. Click the photo for more info like hours– they vary by season.
DV8 and Snowjam were skate/snowboard/BMX events at Olympic Plaza and in front of City Hall from 2001-2003. There were great bands there too, like Sloan, Social Distortion, and Rahzel, just to name a few.
