New Skate Park at Ramsay Park


Construction of the new skate park at Ramsay Park is almost complete. The skate park should be open by mid-spring, weather permitting. Staff and members of the community have been meeting to plan the grand opening ceremony, which is tentatively scheduled for May 21, 2016.

Wormhoudt, Inc. designed the new skate park and took into consideration, when designing the park, the input received from the public who attended two workshops hosted by Parks and Community Services Department.

The park will be over 10,000 square feet, which is about fifty percent larger than the existing skate park at Ramsay Park. The park is located near the Main Street entrance of Ramsay Park, making it very visible and easier to access than the current skate park located in the back of Ramsay. The new park is being constructed out of concrete and will feature plaza style elements along with a bowl. The new skate park is a dramatic improvement over the current park that features a limited number of steel ramps. The new park will provide a much better experience for a wide range of skaters and will be the only park of this type in the county.

The Parks and Community Services Department thanks all of the community members who took part in the planning of the new skate park and are currently planning the grand opening ceremony! For more information call 768-3240.
