Skateboard Strategy for Toronto
This Skateboard Strategy was developed in response to Council direction from 2014 and 2015 to develop a strategy that incorporates policy, operating and capital plans to support skateboarding in Toronto. The Skateboard Strategy provides recommended actions in three core areas:
- Skatepark planning – provides a methodology to guide decisions in the development of future skateparks, including skatepark typologies, gap analysis, and site selection.
- Engagement through skateboarding – explores the ways in which skateboarding can be used as a tool for community building and engagement.
- Animation, promotion and marketing – looks at promoting skateboarding and promoting Toronto as a city for skateboarding. There is also potential for skateboarding to be a tool for economic development.
