Skateboarders in Rimbey are encouraged to provide input as to what kind of park they would like to see.

The Rimbey Kinsmen Club has plans to build a new park, but the club wants to hear from the youngsters regarding its design.

“We will wait and see what the kids want before we go ahead,’ said project chairman Allen Adams.

The Kinsmen Club will utilize the services of New Line Skateparks Inc. to build the new park.

New Line Skateparks Inc. is a full service design and construction firm specializing in the development of integrated concrete skateparks and other progressive skateable environments.

The company is comprised of landscape architects, engineering experts, planning specialists and construction professionals who are passionate active skateboarders.

A decision as to where to build the park has not yet been finalized, although beside the Lions playground or by the ball diamonds have been discussed as possibilities.

To garner input from the public a skatepark design workshop will be held Mon., June 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre.

Funding for The Rimbey Skateboard Park, which was removed, as it had become a safety hazard was originally provided by the Rimbey Lions Club and community lottery funds a number of years ago.
