Work on Castlegar Rotary Skatepark nearly complete

Resurfacing effort almost wrapped up with some minor improvements, too.

The Castlegar Rotary Skatepark at the Castlegar Community Complex has never looked better thanks to recent resurfacing and construction work.

Todd Wallace, maintenance foreman for the complex, said all of the crack sealing was completed as of May 2 and the last of the concrete pours was taking place Friday, May 3.

“Most of it has been open every day,” said Wallace. “The kids have been skating around the work areas.”

Wallace said everything should be finished by this Saturday.

Dennis Stephenson, of West K Concrete, was delivering concrete Friday, May 3 and said one feature of the park was also changed slightly to provide a better, safer experience.

Pat Taylor, of Kootenay View Concrete Finishing Ltd., expected the park should be ready to go by tomorrow provided the concrete is left undisturbed tonight.
