Youth invited to skate park workshop
Aug 14, 2012 / 2:45 pm
Interested parents and youth are invited to attend a Peachland skatepark design workshop on Aug. 22 at the Peachland Community Centre.
Now that council has engaged New Line Skateparks Inc. to design and build the park on the south side of the tennis courts in Lambly Park, the next step is involving youth in the design process.
"There is far more value engaging the youth and other potential users in the project rather than the design team and my department going at it alone," said Cheryl Wiebe, director of community services. "We want this park to be multi-use in nature and designed with the community needs in mind."
The workshop will be by invitation only and those wishing to submit their names to be a part of the design committee can contact Wiebe at (250) 767-2133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
