    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 about 1 month 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 about 1 month 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 about 1 month 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 about 1 month 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.

    You should put in a box jump that is about 4 feet long and has a quarter pipe on one side and a bank on the other

    Horace asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for the suggestion - we will add it to our survey results!

    Will this skatepark be concrete or metal

    Horace asked about 1 month ago

    It is planned to be concrete!

    Will there be a canopy or an area for shade

    Horace asked about 1 month ago

    We have discussed this and currently, we are thinking of alternative ways to provide shade rather than a permanent shade structure (ie. permanent umbrellas shading seating areas, trees, utilizing the building, etc).   If there is a large interest in a permanent shade structure, we will certainly see if it can be included in the scope!

    Recommend an outdoor water bottle filling station to hopefully avoid littering. If the design is to World Circuit specifications Newmarket could host competition to generate/stimulate a revenue to the town and local business sponsors.

    SkateKoch asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for the suggestions!  I will bring them back to the design team. We will certainly look into the World Circuit specifications and see if it fits-in with the anticipated programming.

    Hi Is there going to Be a Bowl or an 8 foot like Quarter pipe section, also 6 foot & 4 foot sections are awesome. I pump section is good. Thanks.

    Gary asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Gary,

    Based on the survey results, we will will select different features that the community is interested in.  Once we compile the survey data we will start on the design which will be shared with the community again for further input.

    Please ensure to fill-in and share the survey with your friends!

    we need a nice bench area and place to sit so on a hot summer day we can ride and take breaks and hang with friends

    ethan asked about 2 months ago

    where will it be located

    Matt asked about 2 months ago

    Currently, the proposed location is on the north side of the property in the grass area between Mulock Dr and the north building face of the Magna Centre.  The idea is to have a junior area north of the east parking lot and and an intermediate/advanced area north of the west parking lot with a path connecting the two areas.  

    A diagram outlining the location will be uploaded as the studies progress.
