Co-Presenters: Trevor Morgan and Jerry Hedlund

This session reviews the development process of a new world-class Skate Park in Red Deer, and how and why the Open Space location was chosen. In addition, it looks at how the community driven Skate Park design process struck a balance between the need for an expansive multi-use concrete surface while maintaining critical green space and a strong link to schools and residents. It also looks at how the development of the Skate Park has excited the community and contributed to future plans for a district-level Community Centre that will connect on the same site.
