Calgary Real Estate - 3 New Skateboard Parks to be built in 2014

So when it comes to buying a new home are you looking for certain amenities for your kids that are close by?  Well here is some news I thought I would share.         


The CIty of Calgary announced that it will build 3 new skate parks this year and there are 5 more planned to be built throughout the city in the future.  


The new facilities will include a “skate spot” in the Chinook Park / Kelvin Grove / Eagle Ridge area and two “neighbourhood skateparks” – one in Huntington Hills and one in Southwood.



The Calgary Association of Skateboard Enthusiasts (CASE) welcomed the announcement.


“CASE is very happy to see the three skateparks going ahead,” Zev Klymochko, CASE spokesperson said in a release. “We are thrilled that it is all finally coming together.”


Greg Steinraths, the city’s manager of sport and partnership development for recreation, said his staff has been working closely with CASE and local communities in developing the parks.


“The feedback we got was amazing and with this input we are happy to be moving forward on the eight new parks,” he said in a release.


In addition to these three, the city is also eyeing sites for new skateparks in Bowness, Edgemont, New Brighton, Deer Run and Midnapore


Staff will now undertake a “participatory design process” for the first three skateparks.


Skate parks are quite popular and if you have kids that enjoy this as a pastime then maybe this is where you need to be looking for a new home!  Contact me today to see what is available for sale in these neighborhoods!
