Skatepark (All Wheel) Park

Summer at the Skatepark 2021

Learn to skateboard for free, all summer! From July 6 to August 26, 2021 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM, Skatepark Hosts will be available at the Trail SK8 Park to offer free drop in skateboard coaching.

Trail Parks and Recreation and the Kootenay Savings Community Foundation are very excited to offer this community service to people of all ages and abilities.  During a lesson, helmets and armour are mandatory - please bring your own if you have them, or you are welcome to use our skateboards, helmets and armour for free.  We want to encourage safety at the Trail Sk8 Park!  Thank you to our major sponsor, Kootenay Savings Community Foundation, for helping make this program possible. Organized by Trail Parks and Recreation, and supported by the City of Trail and the Trail Sk8Park.
