WhaT iT is: CLOSED UP/SHUT DOWN - underground parking garage with a wooden bowl, rails, many pads and some small ramps.

LocaTed: The park is located on the P3 level of the parking garage and is best accessed by the elevator beside the grocery store entrance. This project is still only temporary and hinges on the place being respected and kept clean. Pack out your trash, don’t drink and smoke down there and respect the local merchants and it will last a long time.

NoTes: After several years of trying to chase skaters out of the underground and skate proof the mall upstairs, Intrawest consulted with some skaters in-house on what to do. The answer – give them a place to skate and they will take care of the rest! The result – a skater funded mini-park underground in exchange for self policing of vandalism in the area and an agreement to avoid the mall upstairs.

After a winter of fundraising skate jams and gigs, enough cash was made to build a wooden bowl 3.5’ high, 12’ wide and 24’ long. Being a skater built project, it took a long time to complete because everyone would just skate the finished section instead of working on the new stuff, but eventually it got done. There are also a number of other features including some funky rails, boxes and jump ramps donated by local skaters.
