“Generations of local skateboarders call Ambleside’s street-style skatepark home–and after almost two years of input and fundraising, it’s getting rebuilt. Construction is finally underway for this user-requested project.” Excerpt from the West Van District’s Facebook Page.
New Line Skateparks have been awarded the contract to rebuild the skatepark. construction is already underway, with a targeted May opening. (As always, this will be weather-dependent.)
We had a really great turnout this year for Go Skate Day at Ambleside! Thanks to everyone that came out to show their support and also everyone who made donations!!!
We are putting together a full photo album, but in the meantime here is a photo of local teen hunk Ross.
We’ve received the amazing news that the Ambleside Skatepark Project has been approved by the West Vancouver Council! This is a major step towards the new Ambleside Skatepark becoming a reality.
Rebuilding could begin as early as September 2015 if the remainder of the funding is reached. The entire project will cost approximately $400,000, which will mostly need to come from private donations.
