Skateboarders in Sidney will soon have new a place to call their own after the approval of a state-of-the-art skateboard park to be located at Tulista Park.
Cheers broke out from a young, energetic audience at last night’s council meeting when Sidney Council approved the construction of the new park.
The town began discussing a new location last March as it explored the option of removing the current skatepark near Mary Winspear Centre to build an employee/overflow parking lot.
“The initial community consultation process was a positive indication of the skate community’s support for a new park and their willingness to be a part of the process. The meeting was well attended and input was tremendous,” read a released statement.
The location was chosen as the preferred spot based on its convenient access to bus service, parking and washrooms.
