Skate was great

Rotary Skate Park in Castlegar enjoyed phenomenal season in 2014

Great weather and a great attraction made for a great season.

Proving once again to be the right man for the job, the tireless skateboarding promoter Ty Smith has furnished some graphic reflections on the boarding season just past at the Rotary Skatepark situated at the Castlegar Community Complex.

The ongoing effort has been organized by Kootenay Family Place, with financial support coming from the BC Gaming, Castlegar Recreation Commission,

The Community Foundation of Castlegar & District

Skatepark support: Castlegar and District Recreation Complex,

Media: Castlegar News

Equipment : Skull Skates and S-One Helmets

Curriculum: Drop In to Skateboarding


Ty has supplied some quantifiable stats on what went on at the park and what the weather was like.

Coming up with a reliable “fun-meter” may still be in the future but (and Ty would likely agree), suffice to say the, if there was a fun graph, the past couple of months at the skatepark would have seen the indicators going right off the scale.
