Waiting a turn

Sylvan Lake’s new skatepark opened for use on Friday afternoon and was active with people throughout the weekend. A young group on scooters waited their turn as each descended into the bowl and back out again performing their tricks while elsewhere in the complex skateboarders and BMX cyclists enjoyed the variety available.

A grand opening is slated for Go Skateboarding Day, June 21, from 4-6 p.m. It will include dignitaries cutting a ribbon and Lakeview Optimist Club presenting a $125,000 cheque to the town after they were successful in acquiring a CFEP (Community Facility Enhancement Program) grant. There will also be skilled and talented athletes demonstrating their talents as well as snacks and refreshments for the kids.

Cost of the total project was about $390,000, said John Eastwood, manager of parks, recreation and culture.

It’s located beside the community centre off 43rd Street.
