Topaz Park is about to go through an epic change!

The City of Victoria just approved a nearly $8 million investment into a new Topaz Park redesign which will include a 3,000 square metre skatepark and 6,000 metre bike park.

Level Playing Field will be working with New Line Skateparks on the redesign, guaranteeing the park’s accessibility.

The skatepark portion of the design is divided into four areas within the park — the Main Promenade, Flow Zone, Bowl Zone, and Learning Zone.

The bike park will have a beginner’s looping pumptrack, as well as a more advanced Snake-run track.

A green space will also be incorporated for gatherings.

In June, residents were asked to participate in a survey regarding the proposed redesign.

A total of 471 online participants completed the skatepark survey, 77% of which live in Victoria.

79% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the proposed plan succeeded in meeting the guiding principles established in the Topaz Park Improvement Plan.

44% of participants said the skatepark was their primary interest and 33% said the Bike Park was their primary interest.

22% said their primary interest was in the non-rideable spaces or on the project as a whole.

Construction on the skate and bike park is expected to begin in Fall 2021, and be completed in Summer 2022.
