Ontario's largest skateboard park set to open, October 2
Author: Patty Winsa

The 6,500-square-metre facility is designed for street skateboarders, the kind who prefer downtown spaces where they can jump stairs or ride the edge of a bench on the metal underside of their boards.

The idea is to "give it the look and feel of an authentic street stop because street skating is so popular. It's the founding principle of our design," says Bill Gurney of LANDinc Sports, the company that designed the park in concert with Spectrum Skatepark Creations.
