It seems like we've been talking about building a new skateboard park in Guelph forever, and my recent experience archiving my old Echo Weekly "Guelph Beat" columns more or less confirmed that. But I guess there's some progress moving forward now, so much so that the city is planning an information session about the proposed project a week from tonight.
The full details of the information session can be found below courtesy of a new press release from the communications department of City Hall.
Guelph, On, July 17, 2013 – The City of Guelph is hosting an information session about Guelph’s new community skatepark on Wednesday, July 24.
During the information session, residents will have an opportunity to learn about the proposed Silvercreek Park site and how this location was chosen; review the final skatepark design created through a collaborative design process; and find out about next steps.
City staff, representatives from New Line Skateparks Inc., and community partners will answer questions and receive comments on this exciting and long-awaited project.
Construction on Guelph’s community skatepark is planned for 2015 and will accommodate skateboards, in-line skates, scooters, and BMX bikes.
