Construction began on our new skateboard park last summer and is slotted to open June 16, 2017. Located on the Northeast corner of All-Star Park, the skateboard park will feature snakerun/flow bowl with escalating pockets, drop-in turnaround bank with roll-in and transition extension, and so much more. See the Skateboard Park Concept Design. Special thanks to the Optimist Club of Blackfalds, whose members are raising a portion of the $500K cost.
Construction on the new Bike Skills Park will be underway this summer! We will be asking community members for their input regarding the design concept on April 20 at 6:00 p.m. at the Abbey Centre in the Servus Program Room. The total fixed cost for the park is $350,000.
