North Shore News has an awesome little article about the Ambleside Skatepark fundraising and renovation.
A huge thank you to everyone who has bought the Chocolate Skateboards x Ambleside collab boards and shirts. Every purchase directly impacts the much needed renovation of the current Ambleside Skatepark.
It’s guys like Francis here who really make a difference, buying 4 boards from the Boardroom! Thank you so much Francis!
You can still get boards at Boardroom and shirts both in store and on our online shop.
We are so excited to share the progress that’s been made over the past few months. After many discussions and meetings with the West Vancouver District and New Line Skateparks, we finally have some renderings of what Ambleside Skate Park could look like.
The new park fully utilizes the existing space and provides a great place for all age groups and ability levels to skate. Drop us a line and let us know what you think.
There are less than two weeks left on our Kickstarter campaign, and still a ways left to go! But we’re confident we can do this!
Please share the link and with your help we will be able to complete the much needed Ambleside Skatepark renovation!
Zumiez at Park Royal in North Van will be getting some as well quite soon. We’ll be sure to let you know when they’re for sale.
Because of the positive reaction we got to the Ambleside x Chocolate Skateboards shirts and boards, we decided to make some new black t-shirts, dark grey hooded sweaters, and some more of the white tees as well. We’ve also got kids sizes of both the black and white shirts now for sale.
Check them out below, and click here to visit our online shop to purchase.
The Ambleside Skatepark Project
An initiative to re-design & re-build West Vancouver’s Ambleside Skatepark
West Vancouver’s iconic waterfront Ambleside Skatepark is in need of repair and Eric Savics is leading the charge to re-design and re-build the outdated and weathered skatepark.
Eric is working towards raising $150,000 total in funds to complete the project. He has raised half that already through corporate sponsorships, local organizations and members of the community.
Now it’s time for parents, skateboarders and youth athletic associations to join in. He has launched a project on Kickstarter and aims to raise $10,000 CAN by October 27th to help reach the projects main fundraising goal. The Kickstarter project has raised over $1,000 within its first two weeks and hopes to exceed its goal.
“We aim to begin construction in late spring 2015,” says Eric. “Our vision is to build a progressive and modern skate plaza like stoner park in Santa Monica.”
