Kiosk takes shape at Castlegar skatepark

The Castlegar Skatepark has a new kiosk.

Over the past few months, members of the Castlegar Rotary Club, along with numerous local contractors and organizations have been working on building the kiosk at the Rotary Skateboard Park. The kiosk is needed to store and hand out the skateboard equipment that is used for the Summer at the Skatepark program.

This popular and free drop in program is open to all ages and skill levels. Goals of this program include teaching all ages how to safely use a skateboard and building on existing skills — from the basics to beyond. The program provides free skateboards, helmets and pads to use while at the program.

Last week club members filled in the area around the kiosk and spread topsoil prior to grass seeding. The installation of a counter and shutter on the front window will complete this project.
