Chemainus Skate Park Under Construction
November 12, 2014
(November 12, 2014, North Cowichan) - By early spring, BMX bike riders, skateboarders, inline skaters and scooter enthusiasts will have a home to call their own. New Line Skateparks Inc. has been awarded the contract to construct a new skate park at 2970 Severne Street, the site of the former Chemainus Elementary School. Construction will begin November 13.
The Chemainus Skate Park is a much needed and a long awaited community facility, said Mayor Jon Lefebure. "New Line Skateparks provided the lowest tender of the five proposal responders, coming in at $308,542. Combined, the park design and construction costs fit within the allocated park budget of $350,000."
New Line Skateparks, one of the foremost skate park designers and builders in Canada, has designed and/or constructed skate parks in Tofino, Ucluelet, Campbell River, Cedar and Camp Qwanoes (Crofton).
Users of the 7200 square foot Chemainus skate park will enjoy a variety of features designed to accommodate different skill levels. The park, which is being built on a slope to enhance design features, will take advantage of natural aesthetics, and include a spectator viewing area.
Park construction is scheduled for completion in April 2015.
