Skatepark Redevelopment
Replacing the temporary skateboard park with a permanent facility was Recommendation 14 in the Banff Recreation Grounds Redevelopment Plan, which was adopted by council on March 23, 2015.
Other recommendations include:
  • Work with the local skateboarding community and skateboard park experts to design the facility according to users’ needs and desires. Try to accommodate existing features, such as the mini pipe, that are currently popular with users.
  • Consider the possibility of incorporating winter snowboard terrain features, if they are compatible with the skateboard park design.
  • Design the facility for a wide range of age groups and skills levels.
  • Design the facility for non-skateboards uses, such as scooters, and mitigate potential conflicts.
  • Design the facility in a way that mitigates wildlife conflicts/safety issues.
  • Provide lighting within the skateboard park. Ensure that the lighting design mitigates light pollution and light trespass issues.
