Skateboarding in the City


New Skate Park Coming to HJCRC in 2025

The Lonsdale Skate Park was closed on March 28, 2022 to allow for construction of the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre (HJCRC). A new skate park will be delivered as part of the project, to be complete in 2025. Learn more about the new HJCRC project, including plans for the new skate park, at cnv.org/HJCRC.


Mahon Skate Park Coming Summer 2022 

Council approved a proposal for a skate park at Mahon Park for the community to use during construction of the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre (HJCRC). In May, we held a design workshop with skateboard community members on the design process of the Mahon Skate Park. Feedback from the workshop and the online survey results helped create the final plan.

The skate park will be a permanent feature in Mahon Park with opportunities for all skill levels. It features a simple, street-focused design that links together well-spaced obstacles.  

A two-phase construction period was initially anticipated, but the City is now able to move forward to complete the entire design this summer. Local company RDS has helped to make this happen through their tremendous support and generous contributions to the project, including the long granite ledge, granite benches, and barriers.

What Happens Next at Mahon

Site prep and demo work began on June 13th, and we anticipate that the project will be complete later this summer. The granite benches are currently at the site and have been placed in a location where they can be used during construction.
