A group of local skateboard enthusiasts from five different communities will be checking out four different skate parks in Central Alberta tomorrow on August 26, 2021. Youth will have the opportunity to connect with mentors, share their interests with others, view skateboarding demonstrations and challenges at the parks.

The event is hosted in collaboration with the Town of Sylvan Lake, the Town of Innisfail, Red Deer County, Youth HQ, the Central Alberta Skatepark Association, and the YMCA of Northern Alberta. Each group involved has pre-selected youth to participate in checking out skate parks in Sylvan Lake, Innisfail, Springbrook, and the Glendale Skatepark at the YMCA in Red Deer.

“We are excited to provide this opportunity to youth in our communities who have a passion for skateboarding and scootering,” said Jo-Ann Symington, Community Services Manager. “The youth selected to participate in this event are leaders in the skateboarding and scootering community.”
