Report urges more skateboarding parks for underserved Calgary

More than a decade after opening Shaw Millennium Park, the city is acknowledging in a new report the skater-filled suburbs deserve one new mid-size skate park in every city quadrant.

The document notes that Calgary also has two smaller skate parks at McKenzie Towne and the west-side recreation centre - as well as three portable parks it shifts around the city. But that's a dismal tally compared to smaller prairie cities such as Edmonton (11 parks), Winnipeg (8) and Saskatoon (6), to say nothing of Greater Vancouver (18).
