Skatepark (All Wheel) Park

An Exciting and Momentous Day for Trail  - the Trail SK8 Park Opens!

TRAIL, BC (October 26, 2018) – The City of Trail and the Society for the Friends of the Trail Skatepark (the Society) are pleased to announce the Trail SK8 Park at Gyro Park is officially open! 

Trail SK8 Park

“This is a very exciting day for Trail,” said Mayor Mike Martin. “The Trail SK8 Park has been a much anticipated project for many years. We, along with the Society and all the project’s sponsors, are very proud and honoured to finally present this new amenity to our community.  The Trail SK8 Park is a top-notch facility with 13 features including a large bowl, half pipes and rails. It’s the perfect addition to the concession, covered picnic area, green space, spray park and other great amenities at Gyro Park.”

The contractors, New Line Skateparks, left the site last week and turned it over to the City. The City then spent some time on park cleanup, sign installation and an additional railing installation. “Although the park is open for use, there is still work to be done,” said Martin. “The major landscaping, which will give the park a polished look with greenery and site furniture, will occur in the spring.  Once the landscaping has been completed, the City will host a grand opening celebration.”

The City would like to remind all Trail SK8 Park users to take note of the posted signage in the area and to enter the park through the two designated access points only. “This park is a safe and welcoming place for all,” said Martin. “We trust the park’s users will respect the space as much as they will enjoy it. We look forward to many years of enjoyment from this wonderful addition to our City.”

About the Trail SK8 Park

The Trail SK8 Park broke ground on Monday, July 23, 2018. New Line Skateparks, a Langley BC-based provider of large-scale municipal skatepark construction services, completed construction on Monday, October 22, 2018.  In the spring of 2017, CBT provided $150,000 of Recreation Infrastructure grant funding, and City Council committed $445,000 to complete the project in 2018. Additional fundraising comes from the Society for the Friends of the Trail Skatepark of $80,000 in cash contributions and $8,500 of in-kind services, and a donation of $30,000 USD from the Murphy Family Foundation. Donors who made a contribution of $100 or more are recognized on bronze plaques that have been installed at the SK8 Park site.
