Skate Life/Dalhousie Church on Global News

On November 22nd, Global News featured Skate Life at Dalhousie Community Church. Hopefully stories like these help remind the public that skateboarding in Calgary during the winter months is very limited.

Millennium Park Repairs Needed

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.

Dalhousie Community Church Skatelife

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:

The Slab – DIY Spot

A few veteran Calgary skaters took it upon themselves to build their own spot not too long ago.
It’s referred to as “The Slab” and has half a dozen obstacles now. It’s been a great addition to the neighbourhood, not to mention the Calgary skate scene as a whole.


Kudos to the builders and caretakers of The Slab. Let’s hope everyone takes care of the spot so we can keep skating it for many years to come.

Remembering Mark Pezzi

If you skated at The Source Indoor Skatepark or, more recently, the Airdrie skatepark, you may remember Mark Pezzi, a talented skater who was know for large airs, frontside flips, and exceptional ramp skating.


Mark tragically passed away a few weeks ago. Someone put together some old footage of him skating the Beasley skatepark in Hamilton, Ontario. Watch and remember Mark’s style and sense of humour:


Prairie Winds Park Engagement Oct 28th

The city and their consultant are looking for feedback in the development of Prairie Winds Park. In their initial engagement, a skatepark was identified as a resource currently lacking in the park. This is great news, since to date the City’s Skatepark Development project hasn’t recommended any skateparks in the northeast quadrant.


There is a public engagement session on Wednesday, October 29th from 6:30PM-8:30PM. The location is the Falconridge/Castleridge Community Association Hall (95 Falshire Dr NE).


“The workshops will include a chance to review the initial design concepts for the park. There will also be information on the public feedback received in the first phase of the project.”pw_poster_phase2
