To help our community build a permanent, outdoor concrete skate park that is open to the public. The Waterford Skate Park will promote activities for a large demographic, with a focus on youth, as well as accessibility and adaptive participation.
This initiative is committed to ensuring youth have equal access / opportunity to physical activity and sports in a healthy outdoor environment. Youth deserve a place to grow, and skate parks build and sustain healthy communities.
Help us reach our goal, and make our community a better place to live, play, and grow.
Waterford Skate Park will be easily accessible from all neighbourhoods in Waterford. It will feature a multi-terrain design for all skill levels and abilities, with a focus on special needs with adaptive and wheelchair accessibility.
The Waterford Skate Park will be located on the East grounds of the Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum (WHAM).
