Some of you may have heard that the concrete skatepark at Westside Rec Centre is closing. Well, it’s true. The park will be closing this Fall to make room for the expansion of the LRT or C-train as many like to call it.
Westside realizes how important having a skatepark is and is working with the City on another park at their facility. Preliminary discussions indicate it will most likely be a “modular” park, similar to the ones built by American Ramp Company.
Obviously, replacing a permanent concrete skatepark with a modular park is not the ideal solution but in the long run it could help us Calgary skateboarders in our bid to get a new concrete park built.
