At the Nov. 16 Skate Park Stakeholder Meeting in City Hall Chambers, concept drawings of three skatepark designs were presented for the revamped Baker Creek Skateboard Park in West Quesnel.
The stakeholders, including youth from the skatepark who raised money towards the project, as well as parents and other interested community members, provided feedback on the designs and agreed on one to go ahead.
The designs were created by a contractor from New Line Skateparks Inc after a skatepark design workshop on June 28 saw 20 of Quesnel’s youth attend to give ideas and feedback to the contractor.
In February this year a group of youth from the Skateboard Park presented funds they had raised, totalling $4,431.42, to City Council, that they hoped could go towards an updated park. Council committed to supplying the remainder of the funds needed.
The next steps will include 3D renderings of the preferred concept, final design work, searching for additional grant funding, and project planning.
