Skateboard Park Study
The City of Hamilton completed a Skateboard Park Study that created a standard process for selecting new skateboard facility locations across the city. Public input was gathered through an online survey and public sessions to help create criteria for locating new skateboard/wheeled sports parks n Hamilton.
The Skateboard Park Study results provide a better understanding of:
- Concerns, needs and preferences of park users and residents
- Options for future skateboard parks in Hamilton
The Skateboard Park Study will inform location and design decisions for future skateboard/wheeled sports parks in the city. The study process identified parks as potential locations for future parks. However, a more detailed feasibility review by staff is required. This review will determine site-specific opportunities and constraints. The constraints and opportunities to be reviewed are:
- Land ownership
- Legislative considerations
- Ward Councillor consultations
- Community consultations, etc.
The reviews will take place before skateboard park facilities are included in future capital budget plans.
