The City of Calgary has awarded the construction for “skatepark sites 5 and 6” (Deer Run and Midnapore). The same team responsible for the construction of New Brighton skatepark will be working on these: Wilco Construction with Transition Construction and Radius Construction. These guys have a lot of experience building quality skateparks so this is good news! It’s likely these three parks will be the best-built to date.
Our City contacts have let us know that construction will start later this season; at least one of these new parks will be completed in 2016. New Brighton is on track to be done within the next few weeks. Calgary skateboarders will have more new concrete parks very soon!
