Skateboard Amenities Strategy

We're developing a city-wide Skateboard Amenities Strategy. The purpose is to develop a long-range guide to achieve a network of skateboarding amenities that will serve current and future recreation needs of all residents.

Vancouver CitySkate will explore opportunities for skateboarding and other wheeled sports in parks, plazas, streets, greenways/bikeways, and potentially other public locations. The final product will outline a plan for small to large skateboard amenities that can help guide us as we re-evaluate our public spaces.
