Aug 25, 2021 | 0 comments


August 26 marks the first Central Alberta Skatepark Tour.

As the sport of skateboarding continues to grow, youth from 5 municipalities/organizations are being given an opportunity to try out 4 different skateparks in central Alberta this Thursday, August 26.

The Central Alberta Skatepark Tour is an event hosted in collaboration with the Town of Sylvan Lake, The Town of Innisfail, Red Deer County, Youth HQ, the Central Alberta Skatepark Association and the YMCA of Northern Alberta. Each of the organizations has pre-selected youth to participate in the event. They will travel as a group to try out the skate parks in Sylvan Lake, Innisfail, Springbrook, and the Glendale Skatepark at the YMCA in Red Deer.


“We are excited to provide this opportunity to youth in our communities who have a passion for skateboarding and scootering,” said Jo-Ann Symington, Community Services Manager. “The youth selected to participate in this event are leaders in the skateboarding and scootering community.”

Youth will have the opportunity to connect with mentors, interact with other participants who share their passions for skateboarding, view skateboard demonstrations and take part in skateboard challenges at each of the skateparks.
