The City of Edmonton has a number of skateparks throughout the city that are popular, no cost, play spaces open to any skateboarder, BMX rider, push scooter and inline skater. These skateparks require timely maintenance and rehabilitation to:

  • Extend the park’s use
  • Reduce long-term repair costs
  • Keep the park safe
  • Ensure the facilities remain functional and accessible

Project Timeline

Build Phase

Current

Four City of Edmonton skateparks were identified as a priority and funded for construction in 2017. The City of Edmonton worked closely with the Lorac Construction Ltd. to build a construction schedule for the four rehabilitation projects that considers environmental and user impacts, as well as efficient sequencing of the projects.

Callingwood site

Date: May 1 to May 19 2017*
Construction Update: Construction is ​underway. Anticipated full completion by May 31, 2017.

Mill Woods site

Date: May 23 to June 30 2017*
Construction Update: Construction is scheduled to begin May 23. Partial user access will be permitted in the upper north portion of the skatepark during construction. The lower south portion area will be completely closed during construction.
Access will be reconsidered at different stages of the construction schedule. Skaters are asked to respect the construction site signage and barriers to ensure quality and timely completion of the rehabilitation work.

Castle Downs site 

Date: July 4 to August 18 2017*

Kaskitayo site

Date: August 21 to September 22 2017*

*Construction timelines are weather dependant and may change at each of the four locations.

Concrete tests completed at Mill Woods Skatepark and detailed design for repairs.

Completed Structural condition evaluations for Callingwood, Castle Downs and Kaskitayo.

Received funding approval to proceed with Design and required construction rehabilitation for all four skatepark sites including Callingwood, Mill Woods, Castle Downs and Kaskitayo.

2015

Structural condition evaluation for the Mill Woods Skatepark completed that included recommendations for repairs.

Assessment report for City skateparks completed. Four skateparks were identified for rehabilitation including Mill Woods, Callingwood, Castle Downs and Kaskitayo.

Project Overview

In 2014, the City of Edmonton engaged a consultant to complete visual site inspections on five City of Edmonton skateparks to assess the condition of each park and provide recommendations for maintenance and repairs. Based on the report, four skateparks were identified for rehabilitation:

  • Callingwood
  • Mill Woods
  • Castle Downs
  • Kaskitayo

In addition, consultants were engaged in 2015 to provide a structural condition evaluation for the Mill Woods Skatepark. Engineers conducted visual inspections and provided recommendations to repair concrete damage and distress and to maximize the remaining service life of the facility.

Based on the engineer's report and findings of the concrete tests, design work was completed to address the surface spalling, grind uneven joints, seal wide cracks and complete other localized repairs.

Funding for the four rehabilitation projects was approved in 2016.
