It’s exciting that two of the planned eight skateparks for Calgary will be located adjacent to schools. The Bowness skatepark will be next to Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School, while the CKE park will border the grounds of Henry Wise Wood High School.
Giving students the chance to ride a skatepark during breaks could make great addition to the schools’ recreation programs. It may even lead to a skateboarding curriculum, such as the one at Glendale Skatepark in Red Deer.
The University of British Columbia (UBC) has a small park on their campus, which is used by students and nearby residents.
