    Where exactly will this skate park be located?

    N/A asked about 1 month ago

    The skatepark will be located between Mulock Drive and the West Parking Lot at the Magna Centre. The 3 concept plans provide the exact location for your review :)

    Planters in the skate park will take up valuable space and money that could be used for skate boarding.

    JJ asked 25 days ago

    Thank you for the comment. A small portion of the budget is reserved for plantings around the skatepark to enhance the aesthetics of the Magna Centre building facade. We will limit the plantings within the skatepark envelope to reduce safety hazards.

    Uxbridge has a skatepark and a pump track. Could Newmarket’s outdoor skate park have similar pump track?

    Maria00 asked 27 days ago

    Thank you for the suggestion! A pump track is not part of the scope of this project; but I have informed the appropriate staff about this request.

    I hope the concepts will be run by the actual skateboarders so the voice of the customer is heard.

    SBB asked about 1 month ago

    Hello! We have consulted the community 2 times asking their feedback (once in May and in September). We will incorporate this community feedback into the final design.

    I would like to there are a enough-high sun or rain shed and lights to cover the court to maximize the play hours even during raining weather. If the ramp designed to drain the rain or water automatically would be fantastic.

    Tiger asked 5 months ago

    At this time, we are looking to cover the seating areas only, not the entire skatepark but the design will ensure all water will drain away from the skatepark!

    Will there be an adequate amount of flatland area for longboard dancers?

    Tigerrye asked 5 months ago

    Unfortunately, the proposed location is currently on a large berm which may not allow for a large flat area for longboard dancers. However, I will bring this idea back to the team for further discussion. Thanks!

    Something similar to what town do Aurora has would be awesome. Video surveillance 100% for the kids safety would be my biggest suggestion. Water station/fountain. Also a shaded area of some sort to take breaks. There’s no shade in Aurora and the kids all sit near the entryway to cool down on hot days.

    Lcrowther asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for your comments!  We are still investigating the idea of security cameras and unfortunately, I don't have a firm answer if they will form part of this project right now . We have discussed the idea of installing a water fountain but currently,  we believe the amenities within the Magna Centre will be easily accessible by the skatepark users.  Providing shade is within the project scope -- as we progress through the design we will be able to determine the best solution!

    This is a great location (same as other parks in towns like King, Keswick and Aurora), having the park beside a community centre is safer than other areas and allows the children to have somewhere to go for help, water and washroom. Are you going to add additional lighting? And maybe cameras?

    Nella asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for the positive feedback regarding the location! As of right now, lighting is not a part of the scope, but we will be installing conduit to allow for future lighting shall the skatepark be heavily used during the evenings.  Regarding security cameras, we are still investigating this idea and unfortunately, I do not have a firm answer for you right now.
